Gov. Terry Branstad is appointing a deputy secretary of state to serve as the next state auditor.
Branstad announced Monday that Mary Mosiman will take over the position vacated by David Vaudt, who resigned last month to become chairman of a national nonprofit accounting board. Mosiman is an accountant who served for 10 years as the Story County auditor.
The state auditor reviews state and local financial practices. Branstad says Mosiman will "keep a very close watch over the tax dollars."
An election for a new state auditor will be held in November 2014. Mosiman, a Republican, says she will run for the position next year.
Mosiman's first day in the job is Monday. Her salary is $103,000.
