(2017 statement) My family moved to Arden in 1960 and soon became involved with all aspects of Village life. For me it was a natural thing to serve the Village when I became an adult. I have been an Assessor several times as well as taken various Henry George classes. Most of the Boards of Assessors I have served on have used the “community standard of living” approach to determining Arden assessments. While some assessors feel it is necessary to have a “domicile factor,” in my opinion it is no longer valid as we now know that all leaseholds may add one additional in-home dwelling unit. Further discussion may be needed to consider those leaseholds with more than one such unit. I have also served on the Buzz Ware Village Center Committee, Forest Committee and Registration Committee. I am currently a Trustee of Arden.
