Zielinski for assessor

To the Editor:

On April 9, we will choose a new Grafton Township assessor.

This is a very important role because assessments are the basis for the property taxes we pay, and the current system is flawed. Alan Zielinski is the only candidate with the credentials and experience to raise the bar.

As a certified appraiser, Al is held to a higher standard than the property code requires. His ambitious goals include improving the transparency and accountability of the assessor’s office, establishing a taxpayers’ bill of rights and enhancing accuracy so we can reduce and eventually eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming appeals.

I strongly encourage Grafton Township residents to review Al’s website at www.Al-for-Assessor.com.

I have carefully reviewed the qualifications and experience of both candidates and am confident Alan Zielinski is the most qualified candidate for Grafton Township assessor. He has my endorsement and my vote April 9.

Erin Smith

Village president, Lakewood
