Andrews announces bid for county assessor

Longtime Kitsap County employee Paul Andrews announced his candidacy April 15 to run in the open seat for county assessor.

“I am committed to initiating the three C’s — ensuring the public understands the process of property valuation and feels ‘confident, comfortable and connected’ with the results and the service the Assessor’s office provides,” Andrews said in a statement.

According to Andrews, he has worked in every department in Kitsap County and has worked with all the cities, the state and Suquamish Tribe.

“I have a broad understanding of their unique needs and assists them to find workable solutions to often complex problems related to real property,” Andrews stated.

He said he also recognizes technology is the future and will bring innovation to the office that addresses the publics’ needs.

Andrews said if elected, he is committed to providing on-going outreach to seniors and disabled taxpayers to make them aware of exemptions they may be able to attain and promote other exemptions that are available.

“I will implement a countywide Comprehensive Valuations Standards Program for both residential and commercial properties which will provide transparency for the taxpayers,” Andrews stated. “This is something that does not exist in Kitsap today, but has been requested by property owners and realtors for some time.”
