Statement:
Appointed unanimously by the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors in February 2020 as the new Maricopa County Assessor. I’m truly humbled and grateful to serve at this greater capacity returning integrity and public trust back to the Office. The County Supervisors recognized my 30+ years in the private sector as a successful business leader in corporate America and my 9 years serving on the Gilbert Town Council as a public servant. I’m currently transforming the Assessor’s office to operate as a high-performance and efficient team using corporate best-in-class business practices while providing the highest quality of service at the lowest cost to the taxpayer. My professional IT leadership background is a vital asset to restore a business critical software project that is 5 years overdue.
