Butler County Auditor Roger Reynolds, CPA
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, Nov. 4, 2014, and most recently on Nov. 6, 2018.
Roger’s background as a Certified Public Accountant and Certified Governmental Financial Manager with Chief Fiscal Officer experience enabled him to begin implementing conservative operating standards immediately upon his appointment. As the Chief Fiscal Officer of the County, Roger has led by example during tough economic times.
Within two years, Roger had 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 he’s returned $14 million dollars to local neighborhoods and residents since taking office.
Roger pledged to restore public trust and confidence in the Auditor’s Office and has worked tirelessly on that goal. In 2013, 2015 and 2018, 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 improvement.
“When I first took office we set aggressive goals to reduce spending, reform government and return tax dollars,” Roger said. “Those goals have not changed and will not change.”
