Mike Smith Thanks Bradley County Voters

Tuesday, May 20, 2014

I would like to thank the citizens of Bradley County for their complimentary votes for another term as Bradley County Trustee.

Over the last eight years we have worked hard to increase the rate of return on investments, this year reaching 568% of the County Commission's target. Also, by implementing the numerous partial payment programs currently in place we have assisted citizens in the payment of their property taxes.

I look forward to assisting taxpayers over the next four years.

Thank you for allowing me to serve as your Trustee.

Mike Smith
Bradley County Trustee
