I worked at the Assessor's office from 2008 untill
2013, starting out as a secretary to our former
Assessor Mr. Carl Macios.  When Carl retired I
assumed all the full time responsibilities of the
Township Assessor.

At the last election I ran as a "Write In" candidate.  
This year I will be on the ballot and hope to gain
your confidence by continuing to accurately and
fairly assess your property while steadily
DECREASING the Assessor's budget as I did
during my previous time in the office.

During my years as Assessor:

2011 Budget - $108,100
2012 Budget - $103,000
2013 Budget - $97,850

The current Assessor has steadily INCREASED
the budget for the Office of the Assessor for the
exact same services that I provided while
decreasing the budget.

The graph at the right explains why her budget
has increased from

$97,350 in 2014 to
$163,750 in 2015 to an all time high of
$194,700 in 2016

Her budget has DOUBLED in three
years!

Our current Assessor is currently employed full
time at the Glen Carbon Street Department and
spends approximately
TWO HOURS A WEEK
taking care of the responsibilities at your Nameoki
Township Assessor's Office, forcing the Deputy
Assessor to do both his job and hers.

I WILL BE YOUR FULL TIME ASSESSOR,
easily accessible during normal business
hours, five days a week, putting my
committment to the taxpayers as my priority,
THIS WILL BE MY ONLY JOB.

If elected I will reevaluate and trim the budget
back to an efficient and prudent level for the
taxpayers of the township.

I will not be absent because I am working a full
time job in a different venue.
