Rep. Mike Carter has been awarded the Tennessee Leadership Award by the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers. Bill Bennett, former Hamilton County Assessor of Property and current state Board of Equalization member, presented the award to Rep. Carter on behalf of the statewide association.

“Mike you do a good job working on behalf of the people of Hamilton County and we want to recognize you with this award for leadership on behalf of the Assessors of Property across the state of Tennessee,” said Mr. Bennett.

Hamilton County Assessor of Property Marty Haynes said, “Mike, we appreciate your service and your willingness to work on issues important to our profession. Thank you for the job you do in Nashville.”

Also on hand for the award was Will Denami, executive director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers who said, “Many of the issues that relate to mass appraisal are complicated and Rep. Carter takes the time to understand the nuanances and works to make sure everyone is treated fairly and he deserves to be recognized for going the extra mile.”

Rep. Carter said, “Thank you Mr. Bennett, Marty and the Assessors of Property, I really appreciate this honor. I try to make sure everyone is treated fairly and I try to do the best job I can for my constituents. I believe it is a privilege to serve your community in the legislature and I take the responsibility seriously. I appreciate being recognized for this honor, thank you.”

The Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers 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 in the 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.
