Elected officials need to stop fighting

The process of property reappraisal is a mystery to many of us. It is to me. Credit is due to Assessor of Property John Isbell for multiple articles of explanation about how it works. And if you still don’t understand, there are reappraisal meeting dates upcoming that are scattered throughout Sumner County.

Now comes County Executive Anthony Holt, grousing during a recent Commission meeting, “I think our reappraisal process is a mess.”

If Mr. Holt has ideas and suggestions for improvement in reappraisal methods and processes, I hope he will make them known through the proper channels rather than exacerbate the time wasting animus between two public servants that voters consistently return to office.
