I am a current employee of the Benton County Assessor’s office and would like to offer my insight regarding the race for that position. Let me preface my statement: My intention is not to discredit the capabilities or reputation of either candidate, they are both fine people. With that said, this position requires an assessor with working knowledge of the process of real property appraisal. Bill Spencer is that candidate.
I have researched both candidates’ backgrounds and education. Bill has 14 years experience in the appraisal business, both private and public with his previous experience working for Franklin County. He has appraised commercial, residential, industrial and farm property. We need Bill for his experience and knowledge. He understands the property valuation and the appeal process. I especially like his campaign promise of “I will employ proven and advanced technology to maximize efficiency in your assessor’s office.”
Please consider voting for Bill Spencer for Benton County Assessor. He is the most experienced candidate.
