Nashville, TN, January 29, 2014: Senator John Stevens has been awarded the 2013 Legislator of the Year Award for the 108th General Assembly by the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers. Will Denami, Executive Director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers, presented the award to Senator Stevens on behalf of the statewide association.
“Senator Stevens has taken the time to listen to the elected officials throughout his district and makes decisions based on facts. Legislators are often approached to change laws based on a limited set of information and when they seek to learn issues thoroughly, that is when they are demonstrating the leadership we want to recognize. Senator Stevens is off to a good start in the Tennessee State Senate and we want to let him know how much we appreciate his commitment to public service,” said Will Denami, Executive Director of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers.
The Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers is a professional organization composed of the elected officials serving as Assessors of Property in Tennessee’s 95 counties, as well as concerned professionals and organizations that assist these officials in carrying out their duties.
Headquartered in Nashville, the TNAAO’s purpose is to work on behalf of the people of our great state to ensure fairness and uniformity in statutes regarding the assessment of property, as well as to promote excellence through best practices and professionalism amongst those charged with this vital task.
