“I have had the chance to work with Councilman Bill Gates on several instances and I am impressed with his understanding of the issues facing our community,” said Assessor Petersen. “Gates believes in making government smarter by using technology and finding efficiencies. He will be a great addition to the County Board of Supervisors.”
“The assessment of property values is an important function of our county government and Paul Petersen has done a great job since taking over as County Assessor in 2013,” said Gates. “I was especially impressed with his work helping small businesses during construction of the light rail extension. I am honored to have his support and look forward to working with him once I am elected to the county board. “
