In early August I received calls from several home owners as well as a few past employees of the assessor's office urging me to seek the office of Yavapai County Assessor. A retired employee of that office, Charlotte Waller was very persuasive in our meeting. After prayerful consideration and family discussions I have decided to accept this challenge before me.
Being actively involved in civic issues since the early eighties, my family and I now feel that the time has come for me to offer myself as a servant in the public arena. I am hopeful that I can bring my honesty, integrity and ability to this office.
As you may know, property values have skyrocketed from 2003 through 2006 with the market now stabilizing and in some areas even declining. More than ever we need an Assessor that understands how to accurately value properties in a difficult market.
Another area of interest is the tax burden on the residents of Arizona. We are taxing our best natural resources right out of this county...our homeowners. Young families must be able to do more than survive financially; they must be allowed to prosper. Senior citizens should not fear losing their homes because they can not afford escalating property taxes.
I believe State tax laws should restrict the governments ability to raise levy's without citizen authorization.
As you can see, I am excited at the possibility of serving the people of this great state.
To be successful in this endeavor it will take a very strong and dedicated grass roots organization. I believe the voters of this county will step forward with my family in a united volunteer effort. As you may have guessed my children are already hard at work designing flyers, building winning strategies of their own, and decorating the campaign headquarters. All four have volunteered to help knock on doors, place yard signs and of course, participate in any upcoming parades.
With thousands of brochures to purchase, hundreds of yard signs to order, scores of radio ads to place, and a whole county to cover, I will need help. I am turning to you, and humbly inviting you to get involved in my campaign and help make a difference.
Thanks in advance for your encouragement, generous support, and prayers. Bob and I are both grateful for your friendship and wish you blessings in the new year!
