Marc Gravitt Honored With The Tennessee Leadership Award By The Tennessee Association Of Assessing Officers

Monday, January 22, 2018

Rep. Marc Gravitt has been awarded the Tennessee Leadership Award by the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers. Will Denami, Executive Director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers, presented the award to Representative Gravitt on behalf of the statewide association.

“Rep. Marc Gravitt continues to study the issues and listen closely to his constituents he represents. Many of the issues he has been involved in require more than a surface level review and Representative Gravitt puts in the time to understand how state and local government work most effectively together. His practical approach and desire to improve government at the local level have been much appreciated by his fellow elected officials and citizens,” said Will Denami, executive director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers.

Rep. Gravitt said, “Well, I didn’t expect to receive any award. This is a very nice honor and I certainly appreciate this award very much. Since I began in the General Assembly, I have had a local government understanding along with a 20+ year real estate perspective to help guide me through the various issues. I have enjoyed working with so many dedicated public servants and engaged citizens in my district. I hold the trust of public service in high regard and always try to work to ensure good efficient government for the taxpayers who fund it. This is an honor.”

The Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers (TNAAO) is a professional organization composed of the elected officials serving as Assessors of Property in Tennessee's 95 counties. The TNAAO's purpose is to work on behalf of the people of our great state to ensure fairness and uniformity in statutes regarding the assessment of property, as well as to promote excellence through best practices and professionalism among those charged with this vital task.
