Property Assessor David Morgan’s salary is about $75,000 per year, I believe. So he has been paid $150,000 (two years) to do nothing.
With the deadline approaching, he took vacation. From what? Showing up at the office and not working?
Stop paying him. Or at least garnish his wages until the state is repaid in full. Make it so he pays before he leaves office.
I just realized I know nothing about being a property assessor, so I am overqualified and plan to run for the office.
