A lifelong Butler County resident, Roger Reynolds was appointed County Auditor on April 15, 2008. He was elected to complete the full term as Auditor on Nov. 4, 2008 and re-elected to full, 4-year terms of office on Nov. 2, 2010 and Nov. 4, 2014. Previously Roger served as Liberty Township Fiscal Officer from 2003-2008.
Roger’s background as a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Governmental Financial Manager with Chief Fiscal Officer experience enabled him to begin implementing improved, conservative operating standards immediately upon his appointment. As the Chief Fiscal Officer of the County, Roger Reynolds has led by example during tough economic times.
During his first two years in office, Roger reduced office expenditures to their lowest levels in 10 years. He's continued to cut administrative overhead and staffing levels yet has maintained a high level of customer satisfaction and service. Taxpayers have benefited from his conservative, professional leadership as Roger has returned more than $8 million dollars to local neighborhoods and residents.
He challenged reappraisal rules set by the state of Ohio in an effort to more fairly appraise county parcels and in 2009 completed an unprecedented off-year reappraisal which resulted in an average county-wide property value drop of 4.7 percent. Roger has also “opened the book” on county government by listing Auditor’s Office expenditures online, which can be found on this Web site.
A staunch fiscal conservative with the work ethic to be a full-time county Auditor, Roger Reynolds pledged to restore public trust and confidence in the Auditor’s Office and has worked tirelessly on that goal.
In both 2013 and 2015, Ohio Auditor of State Dave Yost presented Roger and his office with the Auditor of State Award With Distinction for excellence in financial reporting. These awards are a clear indication of the improvements that have been made.
“When I first took office in April 2008 we set aggressive goals to reduce spending, reform government and return tax dollars,” Roger said. “Those goals have not changed and will not change.”
