Jon Snyder of Portage has announced that he will run as a Republican candidate for Porter County Assessor.

In a press release, Snyder said he has been a small business owner in Porter County for nearly 10 years and has been a state-certified appraiser for 12 years. He recently completed the Level I and II appraiser assessor course offered by the state and now holds the certification.

“Jon Snyder believes in a business approach to the people’s business when it comes to the Office of Assessor. The office needs to be reformed and Jon Snyder believes he has the experience and the qualifications to help reform Porter County government and the office of assessor,” states a press release issued Thursday.

Snyder’s announcement creates a Republican party primary for assessor; Gail Hudson earlier filed for the post, now held by Democrat John Scott, who is not seeking re-election. On the Democrat ticket, Maureen “Moe” Wendrickx has filed.
