Getting to Know Dennis Engelhardt.

A QUICK LOOK

WHY DENNIS IS RUNNING FOR BONNER COUNTY ASSESSOR:

The duties of the Assessor’s Office play an essential role in our county government. The principal duty of the Assessor is that of an administrator and the office is in need of reliable and supportive leadership with a fresh and unbiased perspective. Changing an organization’s culture is difficult, expecting meaningful changes to occur when left to those who advanced within that culture is folly.

Having decades of experience in management and administration at the county government level, I offer common sense leadership and management for the benefit of both property owners and the employees of the Assessor Office.

As your Assessor my goal will be to create trust and confidence in the relationship between property owners and the office of the Assessor.

Having the education and experience required to provide employees of the Assessor’s Office with the direction and support needed to foster good public service within a safe, productive and rewarding work environment,

I ask for your support and vote on May 15, 2018 for Bonner County Assessor, and pledge my dedication to providing fair assessment, transparency, accessibility and a culture of public service.

“Fair Assessments with transparency, accessibility and a culture of public service” ... Because it's YOUR Property!
