Providing fair and equitable assessments for all Cuba Township Residents.
Transparency at all levels of Government.
For the office of Assessor the most important goals are: 1. Fair assessments for all properties. 2. Uniform assessments for all properties. 3. Education for the public to understand the assessment process.
All Townships serve the needs of their residents, not just the unincorporated areas, but also those who live in municipalities. Cuba Township has always tried to provide the services required within our communities. As times change our focus should change accordingly.
Serving the needs of its residents such as maintaining our roads, providing fair and equitable assessments and providing help to those in need.
As the Assessor I instituted a salary only program in 2008 which eliminated overtime pay for my employees. I believe this program should be instituted in all Cuba Township departments. Limit salary increases. Find more effective ways to perform certain required duties in all departments.
I have lived in this community for the past 27 years and have been certified for the position of Assessor since 2003. Every year I attend continuing education classes to further my expertise in the assessment field.Copyright © 2013 Paddock Publications, Inc. All rights reserved.
