(Posted Nov. 4, 2015)

By Kristy Zurbrick, Madison Editor

On the day she was elected to a second term, Kathleen Hensel announced her resignation as auditor for the city of London.

Hensel submitted her letter of resignation on Nov. 3, Election Day. Her last day will be Nov. 27. She is leaving the position to take another public sector finance job.

“It’s been, for me, a wonderful opportunity and I’m sad to leave,” she said of her work for the city. “The new opportunity I have is a better one for my family.”

Hensel is near the end of her first four-year term as London’s auditor. The term expires at the end of this year. Before the new job opportunity came along, Hensel sought re-election to the auditor’s seat. She successfully ran in the May primary and was elected to the second term in the Nov. 3 general election.

As of press time, city officials, Madison County Board of Elections officials, and the Madison County Republican Central Committee were looking into the process for replacing Hensel. Elections officials planned to consult with the Ohio Secretary of State.
