Fannin County, Texas -- Fannin County Auditor Alicia Whipple recently completed her first two-year appointment in her role as county auditor. Recently, Auditor Whipple was reappointed by 336th District Court Judge Lauri Blake.

“Ms. Whipple has been done an admirable job as County Auditor. She has moved the financial core of the county from paper to paperless by implementing technology. This transition was much needed and has greatly enhanced efficiencies in the budget, auditing, payroll and purchasing processes for Fannin County. Alicia monitors the expenditures made for the courthouse restoration in addition to the $15 million budget used to operate county business,” stated Judge Blake.
