ROGER A. SUGGS, SWORN IN AS CLAY COUNTY PROPERTY APPRAISER

Family, friends, and employees were in attendance as Roger A. Suggs, CFA, AAS, CCF, was sworn into office by Honorable Judge William Wilkes, on January 6, 2009, as the newly elected Clay County Property Appraiser.

Mr. Suggs brings 28 years in the business of property assessing with the last 18 years as the Assistant Clay County Property Appraiser.

Mr. Suggs addressed those in attendances with a few comments. He thanked Judge William Wilkes for performing the ceremony. He thanked all those in attendance, especially thanking his family for being there, and his daughter, Jessica for helping with the ceremony.

Suggs made the statement that he felt like an overnight success after only 28 years in the business. "It's been a good 28 years, and a very good 18 years, right here as your Assistant Property Appraiser." "Today's ceremony may be about an individual, but in my humble opinion the real focus should be on the County Agency itself, the Clay County Property Appraiser's Office."

"Being the Property Appraiser is an important role in local government. In 2008, the Property Appraiser's office produced an assessment roll that generated over $156 million in revenue for local government. Even in a time when just mentioning the words property tax puts a bad taste in most people's mouths, $156 million is still a significant portion of the funding for local government," stated Mr. Suggs. Mr. Suggs thanked the citizens of Clay County for the opportunity to serve as their property appraiser for the next 4 years.

Following the Swearing in and comments, a reception ceremony and office tours were available to everyone.
