I want to ask for support for Randy Robbins for County Assessor because we need an honest professional person in that very important seat. This is a management position without partisan politics but I’m appalled by the things being said by his opponent Douglas Wolf.
First off, he’s telling voters he’s going to lower property taxes 20 percent. If he believes part of the job is setting tax rates, then he is not qualified due to ignorance. I think he knows quite well that he can’t do what he is promising, but he’s hoping the voters WON”T know – in other words, he’s flat out lying. The taxing authority for the county lies with the supervisor and with the respective cities, towns, councils, boards and districts.
Also, Wolf has made statements about “closing the border,” but that’s just pandering. Aside from border security not being the job of the Assessor (obviously), what does he plan to do, go down to Nogales and wave his calculator around?
Randy Robbins doesn’t stoop to empty promises and pandering to earn our votes. He talks about his qualifications and his work ethic, and the most effective procedures to make sure that citizens receive a fair assessment of their property. Let’s elect a native Arizonan, a University of Arizona Football Hall of Famer and a former Pinal County Information technology professional to put his experience to work for us right here in Pinal County.
Vote for Randy Robbins for County Assessor.
