Assessor appointed to Missouri Tax Commission

JEFFERSON CITY — Gov. Jay Nixon has appointed the longtime assessor of one of Missouri's biggest counties to the State Tax Commission.

Randy B. Holman was first elected assessor of Jefferson County in 1994. His current term expires at the end of this year, but he resigned early to accept the tax commission appointment announced on Wednesday.

The State Tax Commission supervises assessment and equalization practices, and evaluates the quality of assessments by all Missouri counties. The board also conducts hearings for individual cases from local boards of equalization.

Holman, a Democrat, has served as president of the Missouri State Assessors Association and as president of the Festus R-6 Board of Education. His term on the State Tax Commission ends in January 2014.

Another person who ran for the school board to serve local students, only to discover their calling as a politician. Being a board member means you are an advocate for public education, not a politicial that "supports" education.

One of the greatest obstacles I continue to encounter as a school board member is the "political" school board member who practices their "conservative" and "liberal" ideas at the expense of the community, the school district and of course the children. Especially when the position of board member is supposed to be non-political.

The last figure I saw was approximately 60% of all members of the Missouri legislature started out as school board members. Sure means a lot of kids got lost in the "political growth process".
