Indiana will elect a new state treasurer next year. And a county Republican Party official became the first to officially throw his hat into the ring Monday.

Daniel Elliott is a former member of the Morgan County Council and current head of the Morgan County Republican Party. The software company owner said he’s running for Indiana state treasurer to promote economic development, ensure transparency and uphold what he calls “fiscal conservatism.”

The state treasurer helps manage and invest Indiana government’s money. Current Treasurer Kelly Mitchell has served in the role since 2014 and is term-limited, unable to run for the office again.
