Greg Cates, who has been serving the residents of Pocatello as a police officer for the last fourteen years, has announced that he is running for Bannock County Assessor.

In announcing his candidacy, Cates said, “I am running for County Assessor because I understand the hardships we are facing.  Over the past few years, my own property taxes have increased by 76% and, for the first time in my life, I’m worried about making my mortgage payment.

Unfortunately, I’m not alone in this property tax crisis.  It’s affecting everyone from every walk of life – The elderly, our veterans, people on fixed incomes, single parents, even renters, are all struggling to make ends meet.  Enough is enough!!!  We cannot sit by and be taxed out of our homes.

I believe the citizens of Bannock County deserve better.  I understand that cutting taxes and letting people keep more of what they earn, helps build strong communities and a vibrant economy.  I also understand our property tax crisis will not fix itself.  It’s going to require hard work and solutions, not scapegoats and excuses.

If elected, I pledge to do everything in my power as County Assessor to lower property taxes.”
