Watkins Announces Candidacy

Sunday, January 15, 2012

I, Michalle Watkins, am formally announcing my candidacy for the office of Fulton County Tax Collector. Many of you know me, if not by name, perhaps by sight, as I have served in the Fulton County Tax Collection Office for fifteen years.

My tenure as a Deputy Tax Collector has afforded me a great deal of experience.

Throughout my career, I have attended annual training seminars pertaining to legislative changes / updates, computer operating systems specific to tax collection, statewide tax collection policies and procedures, and I've assisted a legislative sub-committee concerning Arkansas' tax collection laws.

I am also a member of the Arkansas Association of Counties (AAC).

I routinely coordinate with state auditors to assure that all pertinent regulations / statutes are adhered to.

All of these factors have contributed to my becoming very proficient with the day to day operations within the collectors office.

Serving Fulton County as Chief Deputy Collector for thirteen years, I've acquired valuable office management skills necessary for the position.

Once elected, I will propose specific technological improvements and make noted changes to current protocol's which will streamline the tax paying process, make daily operations more efficient, and save the county money.

I am a Christian. I am a life-long Arkansan. My husband and I have been married twenty-six years; we have three daughters and one son-in-law.

I am a Democratic candidate for the office of Fulton County Tax Collector. Help me put my knowledge and experience to work for you by voting for Michalle Watkins.

Please vote.
