Vance, Arnold talk goals for assessor’s office

At a recent candidate meet and greet hosted by Clark County Farm Bureau, those running for political office were invited to introduce themselves and discuss their platform.

There are two Republican Party candidates running in the May primary election for Clark County Assessor — Mona Vance, interim County Clerk, and Erin Arnold, deputy assessor.

Mona Vance
With 15 years of experience in county government, Vance said she is “very well versed with different aspects of what goes on in county government.” 

Vance said she has three objectives if elected. First, she wants to create a mapping department to streamline all mapping within the assessor’s office. She also wants to educate taxpayers as to where their money goes when having property assessed. Third, Vance said she wants to create a mobile office to serve municipalities throughout the county.

Erin Arnold
Arnold has four years of experience in the assessor’s office, a position she said has given her a chance to learn the responsibilities of assessor and how to “hit the ground running.”

Arnold said that, as technology changes, county offices should change, and elected officials should “seek more efficient ways to improve our duties and public service.” She added the assessor’s office must operate with integrity, honesty and professionalism while continuing to be a functioning part of local government. “I believe the citizens deserve someone who is experienced and knowledgeable,” she said.
