AUBURN CA - Placer County supervisors are poised to appoint a new auditor-controller to replace Katherine Martinis. Martinis announced her retirement as county auditor ?controller last month and her last day was Friday. The Board of Supervisors will consider a recommendation Tuesday from interim county executive officer Holly Heinzen to appoint Andrew Sisk, the assistant auditor controller for the past nine years, to serve the remainder of Martinis? term. Martinis was elected in 2010 and the next general election for auditor controller is scheduled for 2014. The election would include a primary currently slated for June 2014. The newly elected auditor-controller would take office in January 2015, Heinzen said. The elected position could be filled after a retirement by either a promotional appointment from within the office or by a broader recruitment, Heinzen said. Qualifications for office include holding a degree in accounting from an accredited university and certification as a professional internal auditor. Sisk holds an accounting degree from California State University, Sacramento and has been a licensed certified public accountant for 15 years. In all, he has 22 years of accounting and auditing experience, according to a resume supplied to supervisors. Sisk is also on the board of directors for the YMCA of Superior California. Supervisors will be asked to make a decision on promoting and appointing Sisk at Tuesday?s regularly scheduled meeting at the County Administrative Center, 175 Fulweiler Ave., in Auburn. The meeting starts at 9 a.m. and the appointment is on the agenda, with no time set for presentation. ? Gus Thomson
