Nell Maultsby has announced her candidacy for the office of Assessor of Property for 2020.

A 1983 graduate of Richland High School, Maultsby obtained her associate of arts from the University of Phoenix and is a lifetime resident of Giles County with the best interest at heart for her fellow Giles Countians. She has two children, Chelsea Shelton, married to Timmy Shelton, and a beautiful granddaughter, Brylee Shelton, who are stationed in Fort Benning, Ga., and son Lance Willis and his significant other Hannah Helton, who reside in Lynnville.

“I have over 12 years experience of being a Deputy of the Assessor of Property,” said Maultsby. “I have served Giles County in a variety of areas over the years. I have helped many of you with your ‘Business Personal Property Schedules,’ in person or by phone, from small businesses in Pulaski to Industry leaders in Canada, ‘PILOT’ Programs of our Industries, tax exemptions on churches and non-profit organizations and field work, to name a few. I have worked hard for the people of Giles County for 12-plus years and am knowledgeable in all aspects of the Assessor of Property office through experience.”

There are two main functions of the Assessor of Property office, Maultsby said. They are to appraise and assess property and determine how properties are used and assign a classification of residential, commercial or agricultural. The position of the Assessor of Property requires effective time management due to tight time constraints. So, the property assessor must set priorities in order to meet deadlines. One of the main responsibilities are to notify property owners of the classification and assessed value of their property, in a timely manner, each year.  

“As your next Assessor, I will be involved in the field work of inspection, evaluating the monetary values of property, as well as using my knowledge and experience of the various aspects of the office duties. In order to achieve my goals as Assessor of Property, I would be sure to run a fair and knowledgeable office that will always maintain an open door policy for all. I will maintain a respectable, friendly and highly motivated staff to serve you, the people! Let me put my experience to work for Giles County by electing me as your next Assessor of Property.

“Finally, I strongly feel I am the most experienced and qualified candidate to uphold this position. I would be honored if you would allow me to utilize this experience in the best way possible for our county by electing me your next Assessor of Property.”

Maultsby asks that citizens please exercise their right to vote Thursday, Aug. 6, and vote Nell Maultsby for Assessor of Property, the Most Experienced and Most Qualified!

“Due to COVID-19, my door-to-door campaigning has been delayed. I am hoping to see you all soon! Until then, stay safe, healthy and always be kind to one another.
