OLYMPIA — Former Chelan County Auditor Evelyn Arnold is now financial services director for the Office of Secretary of State.
Arnold was Chelan County auditor from 1990 until 2009 when she left to take the job of King County superintendent of elections. She was named County Auditor of the Year in 2004 by Secretary of State Sam Reed while working for Chelan County.
Arnold and current Secretary of State Kim Wyman have been friends dating back to when Wyman was working for Reed when he was Thurston County auditor, according to David Ammons, secretary of state office spokesman.
Arnold and her husband Randy now live in Steilacoom but still farm 50 acres of pears in Dryden.
