Pearsall’s Peers Cite Years of Experience, Commitment to Fairness For Taxpayers, International Award of Excellence As Reasons to Vote For Veteran Assessor
PRESCOTT — With election ballots about to hit mailboxes in Yavapai County, elected leaders from across the State of Arizona have united behind Republican incumbent Pam Pearsall – including Chino Valley Mayor Chris Marley, County Assessors statewide and Rep. Noel Campbell, R-Prescott.
Pearsall, seeking to serve her third term working on behalf of the taxpayers and business owners of Yavapai County, calls the slate of endorsements “just more proof that those who know this office the best see the team we have working in the Yavapai County Assessor’s Office as among the best in the nation.”
Pearsall, first elected in 2008, is the only candidate in the GOP Assessors race commissioned as a General Certified Appraiser by the Arizona Board of Appraisal. Pearsall is also the only candidate who holds a Level II appraisal license from the Arizona Department of Revenue and who has experience creating mass appraisals and the mathematical models used in a leading-edge Assessor’s Office.
Marley, the Mayor of Chino Valley, said of Pearsall: “As Mayor, I represent all of Chino Valley’s residents and business owners, and I know first-hand how important it is that everyone is treated fairly. That’s why it is crucial that we re-elect Pam. She plays no favorites and she never has. If that means ruffling a few feathers, so be it. Pam knows the law and she obeys it, and makes sure taxpayers and business owners do, too. That means a level playing field for everyone.”
The Assessors endorsing Pearsall include Cochise County Assessor Philp Leiendecker, Mohave County Assessor Ken Fielder, Gila County Assessor Deborah Hughes; Coconino County Assessor Chris Mazon; Greenlee County Assessor Linda Durr; Santa Cruz County Assessor Felipe Fuentes, Navajo County Assessor Cammy Darris, Pinal County Assessor Douglas Wolf and Graham County Assessor Darlene Alder.
Pima County Assessor Staples said of Pearsall, “I have a unique perspective on the job Pam does, and I can tell you without hesitation that she does it well. In fact, she does it extremely well: The International Association of Assessing Officers has awarded Pam’s office a Certificate of Excellence in Assessment Administration – the first and only Assessor’s Office in Arizona to earn the award. It’s an honor given to only 1 percent of assessor’s offices in the U.S.”
