As the former segregation deputy for the Benton County Assessor’s office with almost 18 years experience in the office, I feel obligated to voice my opinion on the current Assessor’s race. I personally know both candidates and like and respect both of them. Knowing the duties and responsibilities of the assessor’s office, I must recommend Bill Spencer for the position.
With experience as a commercial appraiser for Franklin county and managing his own appraisal business for several years, he is the logical choice over someone who has none. We need someone that knows real property appraisal. In addition, his leadership abilities, work ethic, moral values and dedication to the tax payers of Benton County have won me over.
The office does need change and leadership. With Bill you will get the best person for the job. He has listened to all of your concerns on the campaign trail and will make the changes that are needed. Please jo in me in voting for this fine man.
