Re-Elect Lloyd Hara

Lloyd Hara

King County Assessor

Lloyd Delivers Results!

Here are a few highlights of what he’s accomplished as your King County Assessor:

SENIORS & VETERANS

Lloyd helped deliver tax relief to those who need it most!

BREAKING NEWS! The Legislature passed the property tax breaks for seniors and disabled veterans that Lloyd worked and lobbied so hard for throughout the years! His leadership and advocacy mean an increased number of seniors on a fixed income are eligible for the senior property tax exemption which has been extended to all disabled vets.

As a veteran himself, Lloyd is committed to those who fought for our country and returned home wounded. He continues to foster ideas which help veterans and seniors.

ACCURATE & FAIR VALUES

Lloyd dramatically improved the valuation process to benefit all!

Everyone – homeowners, renters, and business owners – deserves accurate and fair assessments. Thanks to those deliverables and transparent procedures, appeals are down more than 50% since Lloyd took office.

INNOVATION

Lloyd used technology to expand service offerings.

Available 24/7/365, the Assessor office’s award-winning web site includes extensive customizable valuation and voter approved property tax measure data. His was one of the first Assessor offices in the nation to deploy mobile devices in the field!

EFFICIENCY

Lloyd worked with labor partners to save money!

Lloyd has saved more than $1 million in office expenses and greatly reduced the environmental impact of vehicles and excess paper, without any layoffs.

IN THE COMMUNITY

Lloyd listens to you!

Lloyd annually attends 200+ events to listen to your concerns, answer your questions and help you understand the property and

excise tax processes

Another Hat in the Ring — Show Lloyd Some Love TODAY

In 2009’s 5-way race for Assessor, we placed 2nd in the spending contest but came in 1st at the ballot box. Your support let Lloyd reach the voters with fact checks in reply to good old-fashioned baloney.

In 2011 we were set to fight for reelection — but with your early support a matter of public record, nobody else stepped into the ring.  By June the heat was off campaign funding. Thank you all again!

After months of buzz in the background, at least one 2015 opponent has made it official — one whose heart is set on raising $250,000 and taking Lloyd out of office.  Once more, your early support is vital.

Lloyd’s department is one of only a handful of offices worldwide ever honored with not one, but TWO Distinguished Jurisdiction Awards … the ONLY government agency to win a Washington State Quality Service Award since he took office …  all while reporting the HIGHEST workplace satisfaction in King County government.

Lloyd faces a very determined opponent.  Can you show him some love TODAY? Click the”CONTRIBUTE” tab above to go to www.LloydHara.com/contribute.

You’ll hear more from Lloyd as the race shapes up, and please stay tuned — it’s going to get interesting.
