The Clear Choice for a Strong Voice

ELECT MARK BAUDENDISTEL

 

for your PIMA COUNTY ASSESSOR

DEMOCRATIC CANDIDATE

                  for all the taxpayers

FAIRNESS: Tirelessly working to ensure the most accurate, fair and equitable property valuation for all. Utilizing the best people, tools and technology. Making it easier to track the market sales – and appeal the value of your property.

VISION: Seeing the big picture. Understanding the challenges of the Assessor’s office as it transitions to a green, friendly and totally transparent more technologically advanced office – dedicated to customer service - with an easy to navigate, user friendly website.

INTEGRITY: Honesty. Dedication to my oath to all the Pima County taxpayers to serve their needs first – and put nothing before the duties and responsibilities of the Assessor’s office. Doing the right thing and openly communicating the procedures, goals and direction of the department.

                                      WHAT I BRING TO THE TABLE:

EXPERIENCE:  as the only candidate currently working at the restructured and newly consolidated Assessor’s office, I understand the issues, the challenges and the solutions - and know the people there - who can successfully move us into this new decade.

  1.  As a certified level 2 appraiser who deals with the simplest and most complex appraisal issues, I have excellent problem solving skills, am accurate, efficient, goal oriented and results driven – I know the business.
  2. As an experienced manager – over 15 years of distribution center management - I know people.
  3. As a contractor - I know construction and the building trades.
  4. As a Title Officer – I know the complexities of the real estate industry and experienced first-hand the causations of the bubble that enabled the great recession.  

CHARACTER:  understanding the importance of building relationships, the maturity to have resolve and compassion, realizing that working in collaboration with the other governmental departments, including the other county Assessors, is mutually beneficial. Taking the oath of public service to the constituents of the County of Pima is my prime directive.

     “Change your opinions, keep to your principles; Change your leaves, keep intact your roots.”                                                      VICTOR HUGO

 

 

EVERYONE ONLY PAYS THEIR FAIR SHARE!

Who wants a fair shake? When I’m elected, unfair valuation breaks resulting in unequal tax burden redistribution will be eliminated.


 

““Whoever is careless with the truth in small matters cannot be trusted with important matters”
― Albert Einstein  

 

IMAGINE THIS:

 A governmental department that is eco-friendly and strives to eliminate paper, ink and the associated delivery costs. A GREEN DEPARTMENT

AND A FLEET OF ALL HYBRID VEHICLES!

 An office where accuracy, efficiency and honesty are prized most.

  AS YOUR ELECTED OFFICIAL, THIS IS WHAT I CAN DELIVER. 

 

LET’S TALK TECHNOLOGY 

One of the most important issues that I will focus on is the updating of systems and software. It’s time to bring this department into the 21st century! I pledge to implement changes to make our website the easiest, most comprehensive user friendly site in the known universe!

  • easily check the value of your property
  • view your current market conditions and activity
  •   learn how sales and new construction impacts your value
  • AND APPEAL YOUR VALUE ONLINE!!

 

BY THE NUMBERS:

  • THERE ARE APPROXIMATELY 410,000 REAL PROPERTY PARCELS IN THE COUNTY.

  • 280,000 ARE RESIDENTIAL, 130,000 COMMERCIAL.

  • 90% OF THESE ARE VALUED BY CAMA (computer assisted modeling application)                                

YES WE HAVE AN APP FOR THAT!!

 

 

 

 

ASSESSOR FACTS:
It is the County Assessor's job, by statute, to identify all property subject to taxation, determine ownership, classify, determine value, maintain the assessment roll, and to process appeals and exemptions as specified by law.

The Assessor’s Department also completes splits and combo’s, processes subdivisions and annexation boundaries, creates maps and assists and educates the public.

There may be people out there that aren’t really familiar with what the Assessor’s Department actually does. We are at the crossroads of a large amount of information that we analyze and compile to a data list. Then we analyze and reflect market conditions to determine the value of property for taxation purposes. The idea here is if we fairly value the property then the burden of the tax roll is evenly distributed.

 

 

The clear choice for a strong voice!

WHY YOUR VOTE MATTERS

The Pima County taxpayers deserve a candidate that is going to listen to thier concerns. A genuine Democrat who understands people need to be treated fairly. I am proud to be that candidate!
