Fellow Osceola Voters,
Too many people on the campaign trail have told me that they feel the weight of the government against them - as if disputes are automatically in favor of the current property appraiser. In the legal system, it is the government and the prosecution with the burden of proof against an alleged defendant. If the government cannot produce evidence or otherwise prove their case, the citizen wins.
Apparently in cases before the Osceola County Property Appraiser, it seems the burden of proof has shifted from the government to the taxpayer to make their case. This is unfortunate, for unresolved disputes result in costly Value Adjustment Board hearings and a potential delay in the school boards and county commissions receiving their respective revenues from real estate taxes.
Under my administration, any concerns about the valuation for tax purposes will be done fairly, quickly and with all due respect to the property owner. As a combat veteran with two tours in Iraq, I know that taxpayers and property owners are not the enemy!
We will also upgrade the website as outlined in the issues page of this campaign site. Osceola county deserves an online presence that serves its residents that keeps up with the times.
I humbly ask for your vote to be your next Property Appraiser.
