Without question, Mary Phillips, Benton County's Geographic Information Systems (GIS) Manager, is the most qualified person to run for Benton County assessor. With a master's degree in resource management, and more than 15 years as a manager in county government, Mary is more than prepared to handle the challenge of running the assessor's office.
Mary's community activities exemplify her exceptional values, especially that of service. As a long-time resident of Benton County, a mother of three, grandmother of one, married to a dedicated man who works as a public school teacher, Mary has done it all. In all that she does, Mary exemplifies honesty, fairness, thoughtfulness and the art of listening. Mary will use those qualities to create a more equitable balance of property assessments within Benton County, while ensuring that every taxpayer is treated equally.
I urge to you select the most qualified candidate for Benton County assessor by voting for Mary Phillips.
