Dear Readers: Blount Today to close
I worked in the Property Assessor's Office a number of years under Mr. Morton. During his failed campaign for Mayor against Mr. Cunningham, Mr. Morton turned his office and duties over to an incompetent assistant who still runs the office today (an Appointed Assessor of sorts) without taking a leave of absence and missing any salary due. It is sad for the people of Blount County to have an Assessor that runs his office from his desk and still largely "in absentia", deferring most of his duties to others who are not fair to the taxpayers or their own staff, harbor personal vendettas, carry out their own agendas, and create questionable assessments disqualifying true sales to keep values overrated. Recordkeeping is a true mess as well. It is certainly beyond time for a change, to restore the Property Assessor's office to the way it should be ran and restore good government practices, fair assessments, and open transparency. If you care about good government, it is past time for a change in this office. Please vote for someone else - your choice. After working with him, I highly respect and recommend Tim, and he is the one I will support and give my vote.
