Free classes on lowering your property tax from our good friend Tax Assessor Cheryl Johnson

Here is some timely information from our award-winning Republican Tax Assessor Cheryl Johnson. Cheryl is doing her part to help you keep more of your hard-earned tax money.

If you believe the value of your property as determined by the Appraisal District (CAD) exceeds the market value, you have the right to protest. Cheryl has been providing these free classes since 2005 helping property owners understand the process, decide whether they should protest, and how to prepare in order to be more effective.

Protesting your property's value is the most immediate form of tax relief. This is a reappraisal year and, assuming sales information is available, it is likely we will see property values increase. Whether the value increases or not, there are numerous things that you can do that may save you some money come tax time later this year.

The award winning class, "Effectively Protesting Your Property's Appraised Value for Taxes," will be taught throughout the County during the months of April and May. As additional classes are offered, the information will be released to the media and posted at each Tax Office and on the website. Groups interested in hosting classes should contact the Tax Assessor's office at 1-877-766-2284 to schedule a program.

Calling all conservative women, SD #11 needs a new SREC Committeewoman

Our very own SREC member Kathy Haigler is term limited from serving us again on the State Republican Executive Committee. The current committeeman Dennis Paul is from Harris County just as Kathy was.

It would be great if there was a solid conservative woman from Galveston or Brazoria county who wanted to step up to the challenge of running for the SREC committeewoman spot at the state Republican Party convention from June 12 - June 14th in Houston. If you are in Senate District 11 which is Senator Jackson's part of Galveston/Brazoria/Harris County then you can serve.

The SREC serves as the board of directors for the Republican Party of Texas and the 62 SREC members are the voice of the grassroots of the party.

If you know of any woman who has the time, energy, and interest to serve they can contact me for details.

And don't forget to attend your respective County/Senatorial District Conventions on March 29th.
