Deputy sup­port for Gra­ham

Rappahannock News - - Comment -

Mary Gra­ham is a life­long Vir­ginia res­i­dent and has been a mem­ber of the Rap­pa­han­nock com­mu­nity for over a decade. Mary was ap­pointed as Com­mis­sioner of the Rev­enue by for­mer Com­mis­sioner Sharon Dod­son. In her three years as a deputy Com­mis­sioner lead­ing up to her ap­point­ment, Mary de­vel­oped new and more ef­fi­cient pro­ce­dures and ma­te­ri­als to help bring our of­fice into the 21st cen­tury and save money for the county.

Mary has:

▶ Helped re­duce spend­ing by de­creas­ing need for staffing 25 per­cent

▶ Plans to phase out re­dun­dant re­port­ing sys­tems and con­tracts

▶ Made in­for­ma­tion about our pro­grams more ac­ces­si­ble and trans­par­ent

▶ Es­tab­lished Rap­pa­han­nock’s first ever Com­mis­sioner of the Rev­enue Of­fice web­page on the county website rap­pa­han­nock­coun­ rev­enue

Mary’s ex­pe­ri­ence, ex­per­tise in com­puter tech­nol­ogy, and in-depth knowl­edge of the Vir­ginia and Rap­pa­han­nock codes con­tinue to make her the most qual­i­fied and ex­pe­ri­enced can­di­date for the po­si­tion of Com­mis­sioner. As an in­di­vid­ual, Mary is an avid sup­porter of lo­cal farm­ers, a na­ture en­thu­si­ast, and a Rap­pa­han­nock busi­ness owner. A vote for Mary is a vote for con­ser­va­tion of Rap­pa­han­nock farm­lands and tra­di­tions. Her goal is to uti­lize her knowl­edge of com­put­ers and her love of ru­ral Rap­pa­han­nock to bet­ter serve and pre­serve our county. This fall, please vote for Mary Gra­ham as Com­mis­sioner of the Rev­enue, a can­di­date that has all of our best in­ter­ests at heart.
