New state auditor sworn in

Mississippi’s new state auditor is pledging to protect taxpayer’s money.

Shad White took his oath of office this morning and will fill the rest of a four year term that ends in January 2020. Governor Phil Bryant named him to succeed fellow Republican Stacey Pickering, who had been auditor since January 2008. Pickering stepped down to become director of the Mississippi Veteran’s Affair Board.

The 32-year-old White is an attorney and has never held elected office. He has also been involved in Republican politics for years including running Bryant’s re-election campaign in 2015.
