Why Mark is running for BOAA:
The Board of Assessment Appeals is in place to act as an independent body evaluating claims from residents who feel they have been assessed an unfair valuation on their property. As an individual who has long advocated for consumers and customers, I feel I can be a strong independent voice for town tax payers and objectively review evidence to ensure assessments are fair and consistent for all residents of Suffield. As a newer member to this great community, serving our town is an honor that enables me to meet our neighbors and contribute to our town governance.
