The Wahkiakum County Eagle - Established as The Skamokawa Eagle in 1891

Pro or Amateur?


To The Eagle:

As a local resident for some seven years, I would like to express several thoughts with the voters regarding our next county assessor. I will vote for Bill Coons, again. Why?

When I bought my home here in Cathlamet, Bill Coons was my real estate agent. We spent days, literally days, driving around the entire town, Puget Island, too. Street after street, Bill would point out individual house after house, its history, its good/bad qualities, and where it fit in value-wise with the surrounding neighborhood.

When choosing an assessor, friends, I think people should look for just two qualifications: 1) Is that person licensed to handle real estate values? And 2) how many years has he spent analyzing this particular real estate market?

Only Bill Coons can answer affirmatively to the first qualification. His opponent cannot. As to the second qualification, Bill Coons has spent over a decade in real estate activity. His opponent, on the other hand, has spent only a matter of months. Let’s continue to vote for a pro, Bill Coons, for county assessor, not an amateur.
