As the Yavapai County Assessor since 2009, I'm not used to making headlines. I'm not much of a "politician" and I'm certainly not used to taking on powerful political interests or armies of lawyers. You may have noticed some headlines in the past few days about the Assessor's Office being sued by a powerful group of ranchers and the Cattle Growers lobby. Because that case has attracted a lot of attention, I feel compelled to set the record straight.
