Unfair attack / May 15, 2014

Dear Viewpoint:

At the Monday night, May 5th Board of Supervisors meeting, I was inappropriately verbally attacked concerning the need to extend the first half due date for the real estate taxes. One of the supervisors personally attacked my integrity and the integrity of my office and implied I was incompetent to run my office. Due to the conversion of the real estate to a new computer system, there have been delays getting the book and tax tickets out. Conversion of data is a complicated process and the programmer from Vision and myself have worked diligently to get the information correct in order for me to run my real estate book.

It was implied that the delays on real estate were due to my absence from work a couple of days last week when my daughter had surgery. At the time, we could not work in the new system since their programmers were trying to correct mistakes in the information that was converted.

I would like to personally thank Vice Chairman, Bryant Claiborne, for stopping the verbal attack on me and my office.

Brenda P. Powell
