Gail D. Hudson has announced that she has filed to run as Porter County Assessor on the Republican ticket.

Hudson has 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.
