Fisher candidate for OC Tax Assessor
My name is Karen Fisher and I am a candidate for Orange County Tax Assessor. I am married to Joe Fisher. We have eight children and fourteen grandchildren. I attend Friendship Bible Baptist Church in Vidor, and have lived in Orange County for the past 42 years.
I have worked in the Orange County Tax Office for 23 years, most of that time I have worked in the Vidor Tax Office. The past 15 years I have been the office manager/supervisor in the Vidor office. I have an Associates Degree in Accounting, and I am the only candidate with these qualifications. I served on the Board of Directors for the Greater Orange Chapter of the American Red Cross. Although it is not required to be certified to become a Tax Assessor Collector, I am now in the process of finalizing my certification to become Tax Assessor Collector.
My main emphasis will be that customer service is a priority. I would like to see the Orange and Vidor Tax Office have a more Customer friendly atmosphere. I want to make the office a place where you enjoy coming to conduct your business. A place where the employees want to go to work, and enjoy what they are doing. We have to be there for 8 hours, let’s have fun and make it an enjoyable experience for you the customer, as well as the employee.
Ms. Gunstream is leaving behind a good group of professional women. She will be a hard person to replace and will be deeply missed. I am looking forward to continuing her leadership qualities.
If you agree with me, and want to have a Tax Office that treats customers with respect, a smile, and make them feel important, I would greatly appreciate your support. I am asking for your vote in the upcoming Primary Election March 1, 2016.
I would like to thank you for your support and may God Bless.
