Letter: Vote Hannold out of office


I was astounded to read Rick Hannold’s statement in the Voters’ Pamphlet that he “has become known for working to keep taxes and fees low.” Sure he has. Last year the assessed value of one parcel of our property was increased 500 percent and another 386 percent. When I asked the assessor to explain, she said the county commissioners asked her to increase property values so they could have more money.

That’s how Hannold keeps taxes low? Let’s vote this misfit out of office before he makes it impossible to afford property ownership in Island County.
