“When the prior Assessor of Property resigned in December, I was appointed the Montgomery County Commission,” said Hester. “I am probably running for office during the absolute worst time for an assessor because we just finished the reappraisal process. Those were the cards I was dealt. We worked really hard through that process.”

“I want our office to be a place where you come in and you have a question and your greeted with a smile and someone that knows what their talking about,” Hester commented. “Our property is our home. It’s our castle. It’s our investment. It’s our retirement and I want property owners to know that my office respects that.”
