Self-stumping |


Dear Editor: My name is Mark Chapin, and I am seeking to represent you in the office of Eagle County Assessor. I am a 40-year resident of Colorado, living in and growing up in two resort and agricultural areas, the Eagle River Valley and Durango. My successful career in assessment and appraisal has spanned 29 years, and I hold the highest appraisal license in Colorado as a Certified General Appraiser. I have lived the past 14 years in Eagle County, working in local government as an appraisal manager and deputy assessor for Eagle County and, most recently, as a private business owner of Chapin Valuation Consultants.Throughout my career, I have worked hard to grow my professional, leadership and management skills. As deputy assessor, I helped build and manage a large, cohesive and professional staff that was well-versed in all aspects of the assessor’s office, from appraisal and assessment planning, coordination and implementation to staffing and managing the budget. I have always had an open door policy and enjoy working directly with the public, educating people about the assessment process and solving any issues that arise with a positive, win-win approach.Beyond my professional qualifications, I am a hard working, passionate public servant with a calling to serve the people. That is why I am seeking the office of Eagle County Assessor.With just a few days remaining until election day, and many more hands to shake, doors to knock on and miles to walk, I am stopping to write this letter to ask you to vote for me on Nov. 7 for Eagle County Assessor. My promise to you is to represent you to the fullest of my capability. Please, get out and vote! Thank you for your vote on Tuesday.Mark ChapinEagle
