Angie Hicks settling in as new county auditor

By Tim Huether

After a little over a month of taking over as the new Bennett County Auditor, Angie Hicks is feeling more and more at home. Hicks took over on Nov. 1, for long-time auditor Susan Williams who retired the end of October.

She was appointed by the Bennett County commissioners, but will have to run for that office in the next election as the auditor is an elected position.

“Learning all the ins and outs of how the county operates is very interesting,” offered Hicks. “I’m also learning how to be a boss, which is good. Lindsay and I are learning and growing together.”

Lindsay Little Eagle is her recently hired deputy auditor.

“I love working with the numbers, as long as they work for you,” said Hicks. 

Angie said she is a little nervous about election time but former auditor Susan Williams has offered to help out.

“I’m so thankful Susan has offered to help me and the Secretary of State office has been wonderful to work with, and it’s comforting to know they are all there to help us succeed,” remarked Hicks. 

Hicks started at the auditor’s office as the deputy auditor in December of 2018, getting a year of training in under Williams, helping her get off to a good start on the job.
