I have been working for Jackson County for the pas 21 years and have gained valuable experience of the regulations and statutes in the running of County Government. I have completed all mandatory accreditation as required by the Oklahoma Tax Commission, per State Statutes. The training consists
of seven classes provided by the Center of Local
Government, division of OSU, which pertains to County
Government and Property Appraisal. I've completed all
courses with an average score of 98 percent.
During my employment with Jackson County, I have had
many different responsibilities for the county
including: Roads, Receiving, Purchasing, Safety,
Emergency Management, Floodplain Administrator,
Appraiser and currently Assessor. While managing
these responsibilities, I have applied for, received
and administered different grants that have improved
courthouse security, emergency management and better
community service. I have built and maintained a
website for Jackson County where you can find
information about County offices and officers,
Commissioners' agendas and minutes, Sheriff's monthly
reports and a list of sex offenders in the county. I
have worked closely with the other county offices and
officers and have established a good working
relationship with all. During my time in the
Assessor's office, I have worked on upgrading the
office to better serve the public and have worked with
the E911 center to focus on the growing needs of
address mapping for more efficient emergency response.
My wife, Linda, and I have made our home in Altus for
the past 22 years; we have two daughters and four
wonderful grandchildren. Linda has worked for Jackson
County for 22 years, the last 16 as the Deeds Clerk
for the Assessor's office.
Jackson County has grown by leaps and bounds, and
with that comes new challenges for the Assessor's
office. I feel that with the experience and skills I
have acquired, I would be the best person qualified to
continue to serve the citizens of Jackson County and
it would be my honor and privilege to do so.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact me at
580-318-2545 or come by the Assessor's office on the
second floor of the Jackson County Courthouse.
