A press release from the Republican Party candidate for Grafton Township Assessor, Al Zielinski:
Alan Zielinski, Republican nominee for Grafton Township Assessor, announces major endorsements.
VILLAGE OF LAKEWOOD, IL (March 25, 2013) – Alan Zielinski, Republican nominee for Grafton Township Assessor, is pleased and grateful to announce two major endorsements.
Representative Michael Tryon, 66th District, Illinois House of Representatives, had these comments:
“It’s refreshing to see a seasoned businessman wanting to apply those proven skills in office thereby making life easier for my constituents.
“Alan’s three decades of valuation expertise and even deeper senior management experience will be a welcome asset in my district.
“I’m especially intrigued with Al’s proposed Property Taxpayer Bill of Rights and will give it the review and deliberation that type of innovative legislation deserves,”
Village of Lakewood President Erin Smith said,
“On April 9, we will choose a new Grafton Township assessor.
“This is a very important role because assessments are the basis for the property taxes we pay and the current system is flawed. Alan Zielinski is the only candidate with the credentials and experience to raise the bar.
“As a certified appraiser, Al is held to a higher standard than the property code requires. His ambitious goals include improving the transparency and accountability of the assessor’s office, establishing a Property Taxpayer Bill of Rights and enhancing accuracy so we can reduce and eventually eliminate the need for expensive and time-consuming appeals.
“I strongly encourage Grafton Township residents to review Al’s website at www.Al-for-Assessor.com.
“I have carefully reviewed the qualifications and experience of both candidates and am confident Alan Zielinski is the most qualified candidate for Grafton Township Assessor. He has my endorsement and my vote.”
Also endorsing Zielinski is Grafton Township Republican Party Chairman Tom Poznanski, who is also the GOP candidate for Grafton Township Assessor.
