Letter to the editor: Support Lisa Eurich for Summit County assessor in June election

Wendy Blasingame

We received a knock on our door the other evening. It was Lisa Eurich, one of my husband’s former colleagues at the Summit County Assessor’s Office. Eurich is running for the Summit County assessor. She is busy making in-person contact with registered voters to gather enough signatures to get on the Democratic primary ballot for the June 28 election.

As a long-time resident of Summit County and someone who has a personal relationship with Eurich, I would like to endorse her for this position. Her work experience includes time as a real estate escrow agent, a clerk for the Summit Board of County Commissioners and an administrative clerk for the county manager’s office. Most importantly, she is a certified residential appraiser. As a former appraiser in that office, she understands the county’s valuation and appeal process, and she knows what will make the office an efficient and effective agency for the county. She is pledging to hire more staff who are knowledgeable about the office and its operation, and she is committed to creating an environment that will encourage and sustain productivity and excellence.

During the last election, the current assessor ran uncontested; it is time for a change. Eurich possesses the knowledge, the experience and the desire to become a candidate on the next ballot. As a grassroots candidate, she needs your help. During February and early March, Eurich will be holding several in-person meet-and-greets. Those locations and times will be listed on her website.

Eurich is hitting the ground running with unbounded energy and excitement to serve the citizens of Summit County. Please join me in supporting Eurich as a candidate for the Summit County Assessor’s Office.
