I worked for Benton County for 35 years. In that time you see a lot of people come and a lot of people go. You see employees who are okay, some who are good and some who are the best.
Mary Phillips is running for Benton County assessor. She is one of the best!
She is extremely knowledgeable in every aspect and already has a grasp of county government by managing her own GIS department for several years.
She has never gone over budget. She has helped implement new technology in Benton County. Just go onto the county web page and be amazed at the information available to everyone. Much of that is due to her knowledge and abilities to work with multiple agencies.
Just ask any surveyor or realtor who requests recorded parcel-related documents from the county.
They now receive them digitally in minutes, compared to getting the paper copies mailed to them in the past.
These are just a few of her accomplishments. I encourage you to vote for Mary Phillips. She will make an outstanding assessor.
