To the Editor:
Grafton residents should elect Terra Jensen as their next assessor.
Why Jensen? She knows how to do the job, being deputy assessor in Elgin.
She has made it clear that she would do assessments objectively. Her opponent promised to lower assessments so well that after four years almost no one would feel the need to appeal, which is impossible. He also made the ridiculous proposal to do assessments several times per year, which would be expensive and useless according to the rules for establishing taxes.
Her opponent has an ethical cloud hanging over him for the circumstances surrounding his homestead exemption in Lake in the Hills and how he maneuvered to get the foreclosure price he paid be the one given as the fair market value by the Board of Review.
Vote for the candidate with integrity.
