BOONE COUNTY, Ind. (January 11, 2023) — Three newly elected Boone County officials took over in their new capacity to start 2023. The Boone County Commissioners are confident these newly elected officials will provide the community with highly responsive and professional services.
Boone County Assessor Jennifer Lasley
Assessor Jennifer Lasley was originally brought into her position in March 2022 when her predecessor, Lisa C. Garoffolo, retired. She ultimately won the general election.
A lifelong resident of Boone County, Lasley earned her bachelor’s degree from the Kelley School of Business, along with a Level III Assessor-Appraiser Certification. She brings over a decade of experience to the office as a former Deputy Assessor. She says she ran for Boone County Assessor because of the experience and knowledge it takes to run the office by ensuring Indiana State Code is always being followed.
Lasley is also active in the community through her volunteer work with several organizations, including the Boone County Humane Society, the Back to the Fifties Festival, the Boone County Cancer Society, and the Lebanon Elks Lodge #635.
“My experiences within the office will allow me to continue providing high-quality service to our Boone County taxpayers,” Lasley said. “I look forward to getting involved with the other 91 County Assessors in the State of Indiana and learning from their experiences. I would like to say thank you to the community for the support and faith in me to be your Boone County Assessor.”
Lasley is married with one child.
Boone County Surveyor Carol Cunningham
A lifelong resident of Boone County, Surveyor Carol Cunningham has been with the Surveyors Office since 1986. She served as the Assistant Surveyor from 1990 to 2022 and took over duties as Boone County Surveyor in January 2023 after former Surveyor Kenneth Hedge retired.
In 2022, Cunningham received a certificate from the Indiana County Surveyor’s Association for the completion of the Institute for Excellence program. She has been deeply involved in the community and was appointed to the Lebanon Storm Water Board, where she served as Vice President for eight years. She has volunteered in various roles for the past 20 years including on the Boone County Fourth of July Committee.
Cunningham is a member of the Lebanon Christian Church and is married with two grown children and three grandchildren.
Boone County Clerk Lisa Bruder
Clerk Lisa Bruder has worked for the Boone County Clerk’s Office for 16 years. She’s served as a First Deputy for the last eight years.
Originally a graduate of IvyTech with an Associate in Applied Science with a Paralegal Degree, she began her career working for the Boone County Circuit Court. After five years in that position, she went on to work for different attorney’s offices before returning to the Clerk’s Office in 2007.
“I love working with the public and helping better our community,” Bruder said. “Our office has so many different tasks to learn, and while I enjoy learning and working on the election side, my true love lies on the legal side.”
A Thorntown resident, Bruder has been active in the community while serving on the Sugar Creek Township Advisory Board for the last two years. She is also a coach of the Junior High Girls Tennis team at Western Boone.
In her free time, she enjoys doing fun activities with her husband, Randy, and three children, Kara, Nathan, and Phoebe.
