Having earned the reputation of being the Taxpayer’s Watchdog at City Hall, and who was labeled by the Florida Times-Union as “among the most aggressive protectors of tax dollars on the City Council,” John intends to improve the accuracy and efficiency of all Tax Collector operations by cutting waste, implementing new technologies, and requiring friendly, courteous service be provided to every customer.
As a former licensed franchisee of Hickory Farms, John is the only candidate with 37 years of experience providing premium customer service and managing the operations of multiple locations. When combined with his more than 18 years of combined service on the City Council, he is the perfect choice to oversee a staff of nearly 200 people and 10 branch offices.
As your next Tax Collector, John pledges to:
- Require that friendly and courteous service be provided to every customer
- Implement more convenient hours (including Saturdays and extended weekday hours at select locations)
- Improve accuracy and efficiency in the operation of all Tax Collector functions
- Reduce penalties (service charges) for online debit and credit card transactions
