Finally, a sole assessor in Delaware

At a public hearing on a local law that would change the current system for selecting assessors in the Town of Delaware from the election of three assessors to the appointment of one assessor by the town board, comments were heavily in favor of the new law. Fifteen people signed up to speak.

The first, Rich Ferber, was the only one to speak against it. One comment was a letter endorsing Linda Schwartz. The remaining 13 commenters spoke up for the law, including three former town assessors (Bob White, Frank Fulton and Renee Ozomek) and Virginia Andkjar (one of the current assessors).  Read more
