Sonoma County appoints interim auditor-controller

Donna Dunk


The Sonoma County Board of Supervisors on Tuesday appointed Donna Dunk to an interim post as the county’s Auditor-Controller-Treasurer-Tax Collector.

A county employee since 1985, Dunk has served 23 years in the auditor-controller’s office and as the county’s assistant auditor-controller for the past seven years. Her appointment follows the retirement May 31 of Rod Dole, who was re-elected to the county’s top financial post last year. Dole held that position for more than 25 years.

Dunk will be in her new role until the board of supervisors appoints a permanent replacement for Dole. The county’s personnel department is set to manage the application process for the position and will be recommending candidates for interview and selection by the board later this year.

Dunk is set to receive a 10 percent increase in her current salary of $138,516. After the change it would become approximately $152,376. She also receives approximately $70,000 annually in county-paid benefits.

    Nearly $250,000.00…..The retiring auditor/treasurer’s annual retirement package.

    $152,376.00 plus roughly $70,000.00 in additional benefits…..The salary for the interim auditor/treasurer….

    Layoffs in the hundreds of county employees and cuts to essential services……priceless!!

    Congrats to Donna but is she also going to run for the office as the Auditor and/or Treasurer Tax Collector as both positions are Elected Officials. I hope she has good Jimmy Choos Shoes.
