We live in the best part of the best country in the world. We run government services off of property taxes. Owning property is a right we enjoy, an expression of individual independence and part of being a good citizen. It is time our interests were better represented in the government that lives off of us.
If you elect me you will put a member of the taxpayer team with taxpayer views in the game. We will have some say, rather than just pay the rent.
I will ensure that the legislated roll back of property taxes next year is fairly distributed. I will institute policy and propose legislation where necessary to: 1. Keep people from being taxed out of their homes 2. Encourage remodel and upgrade of existing structures 3. Reduce the impact of development on surrounding properties.
Do you honestly agree with your property valuation? Think your taxes are fair? If not, can you do anything about it? You can vote. It is time for a change. Put a fresh perspective in county government. Vote for me Darren Wertz for Clark County Assessor.
