assessor

Rensselaerville assessor Donna Kropp was the subject of an ethics case last year — ultimately determined to be unfounded due to missing files — brought by a complaint of Jeffry Pine, a former assessor for the town who is now  running against her in the upcoming election.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Assessor Michael Weber is running for a second term for the job that he says matches his temperament.

RENSSELAERVILLE — Two years after losing in the election for assessor, Jeffry Pine is running again, claiming properties affected by Tropical Storm Irene haven’t been properly assessed.

RENSSELAERVILLE — This is the third election for Donna Kropp, currently the chair of the town’s assessors. First elected in 2005, the Republican says she wants to continue to use the investment she has made in training.

RENSSELAERVILLE — With three decades of corporate experience behind her, Independence Party member Kathryn Wank says she wants to do the job of assessor fairly and by the book.

BERNE — With her children grown up, Melanie Bunzey wants a new way to connect with people in the town. The Democrat is running for a four-year assessor position.

BERNE — After 10 years as an appraiser, Republican Walter Scram wants to add assessments to his work of evaluating properties.

Although nearly half the town's voters are enrolled as Democrats and a decade ago the party dominated, it is now the small parties that are determining the winners.

In three instances, candidates didn’t file their paperwork on time and failed to secure endorsements before the Sept. 10 primaries.

“I’d worked in the assessor’s office for so long, it felt like I had really good training,” said Karen VanWagenen on stepping up to the helm.
