GOP Caucus Chooses New Lake County Assessor

Share this post

Lake County begins this week with a newly-named county assessor. 46-year-old Jolie Covaciu of Cedar Lake was selected in a county Republican caucus of precinct committee members Friday to fill a post formerly held by the late Hank Adams. Adams passed away early last month at the age of 77 shortly after stepping down from his elected post for health reasons. Covaciu, Lake County's first female county assessor, defeated Debra Johnson by a vote of 56-52. Adams was the first Republican elected to a countywide seat in Lake County in over half a century.
