Certified Property Assessor John Whitehead and Insurance Claim Adjuster Phil Ballard just appeared on Inside Tennessee on WBIR. The panel were Knoxville Attorney Don Bosch, Public Relations Executive Susan Richardson Williams and Knoxville News-Sentinel Editor Jack McElroy. In their closing remarks, Ballard said "I want my term". Just like he was the kid on the playground screaming for his turn. The position of Property Assessor is not about one person or the cronies they can hire. It is the peoples business. When the people select the next Property Assessor they need the most qualified. Whitehead is a Certified Property Assessor and has personally assessed 1000's of personal and commercial property.
