Clark County Commissioners appoint Hillary Hamilton as acting County Auditor

The Board of Clark County Commissioners appointed Hillary Hamilton as Acting Clark County Auditor at this morning’s meeting to replace former auditor John Federer, who retired effective Friday, Sept. 1.

Hamilton, a Wittenberg University graduate, has been employed by the Clark County Auditor’s Office for 18 years. She served as Appraisal Director for more than nine years, guiding the office through two triennial updates and one mass reappraisal. Hamilton lives in Pleasant Twp. with her husband, Joe, and their three children, Connor, Madeline and Benjamin.

“I’m very excited and grateful for this opportunity,” Hamilton said. “I pride myself with the rapport that I’ve built with taxpayers and organizations throughout my service.  Whether it has been answering a value question, helping a taxpayer with homestead, or issuing a dog license ─ communicating and helping the taxpayer has always been the most satisfying part of my career.”

Federer was serving his fourth term as Clark County Auditor. He was first elected in 2010 and was re-elected in 2014, 2018 and 2022. During his tenure, Federer made several changes to the office, including restructuring departments, implementing online dog tag sales and allowing greater use of the Clark County GIS system.

Hamilton was recently named Chief Deputy Auditor during Federer’s recent absence.

“He trusted me and had the confidence to designate me as Chief Deputy,” Hamilton said. “He knew with my skillset and leadership experience, I was the best candidate to run the Auditor’s Office. My vow is to lead and support a well-run, efficient office that will communicate and support the various entities and taxpayers of Clark County.”

The Clark County Republican Party is expected to select an acting auditor to serve the remainder of Federer’s term next month.
