Gail D. Hudson has announced that she has filed to run as Porter County
Assessor on the Republican ticket.
worked for the Porter County Assessor’s office under two different assessors
for the past seven years. She holds a Level II assessor certification, which
she obtained in 2008.
In a statement,
Hudson said she does not need on-the-job training and has the assessing
experience and knows the software and the state requirements.
“If elected, I
will not only be a responsive department head, but a working office holder.
Up until this last election cycle I doubt if the average citizen knew how
important the respective duties of the assessor, auditor and treasurer of a
county were. I don’t need on the job training and I will work with everyone
concerned not only within the assessor department, but the other departments
to help produce accurate, on time and correct tax bills,” she said.
“I would also
make new policy so appeals would be more user friendly and not linger on
into the next assessment cycle. What is being done now is not only
frustrating the citizens appealing, but affects the funding of other local
units of government,” she said.
Hudson and her
husband, Rich, have two adult children and have been involved in local
politics for the past 25 years.
