Bradley County Assessor of Property, Stanley Thompson, was awarded the 2013 Assessor of the Year Award before the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers during the annual winter meeting in December. The award was presented on behalf of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers by the 2013 President, Betty Burchett.

After 28 years in the office, Stanley continues to demonstrate on a daily basis the knowledge and professionalism of an outstanding assessor of property, he is always willing to go above and beyond the duties of his office, most recently, after completing his job of creating the assessment roll, he spent countless hours examining and perfecting the details of the entire tax roll, a task which had never been done before in Bradley County, he has definitely earned the award of Assessor of the Year.”

Mr. Thompson said, “I never set out to win any award, I just try to do a good job. If we see a problem, we just fix it. I know a lot of folks like to say well that is not my job, but, in my office, we say - let’s just get the job done.  We have an excellent team in the Bradley County Assessor’s office and we try to make sure everyone is treated fairly. It is a privilege to serve the people of Bradley County and an honor to be recognized by so many other good assessors across the state.”
