Formal introduction to county commissioners

The St. Joseph County Board of Commissioners this week was introduced to someone they’ll be seeing more frequently later this year.
Lindsay Oswald, who last week was appointed to serve the remaining 18 months of Pattie Bender’s term as county clerk and register of deeds, was presented by Circuit Court Judge Paul Stutesman.
Oswald will start her appointed term July 1, a day after Pattie Bender retires and concludes a 45-year career as a county employee.
Oswald, a 35-year-old Lockport Township resident said afterward she plans to continue her job as county grant writer through the end of June, though she will have an opportunity to work with Bender during the May 5 election.
Oswald plans to run for the four-year post, for which the term begins Jan. 1, 2017. During the 18-month appointment period, the salary for the position will not change from what Bender currently earns – about $71,000 a year.
