Andrea Correa

Lifelong Colusa County resident, Andrea Correa, believes that her work ethic, honesty and her passion for this County will make her the best choice for Colusa County Assessor.

Since 1986, Correa has worked for Colusa County with 16 of those years within the Assessor’s office.

“I have vast knowledge of all the operations within the office.” said Correa.

Since 2004, Correa currently performs as the Assistant Assessor, overseeing 12 staff members.

“To be a good Assessor you have to be committed to the job, have accountability to the department while providing adequate education to our tax payers.” said Correa.

Correa cites her experience, leadership, and communication skills.

“I have worked for over 40-years in both the private and public sector,” said Correa, “I worked at Bank of America for over 12 years, many of those years as a manager. I believe that experience helped me get the job that I am doing now.”

Correa’s current duties also includes managing and developing the department’s budget, submitting grant applications, State Reporting, and manages the State Board Forms within their department,

“I have my degree in Business Administration, I am a Certified Property Tax Appraiser, and have been trained on the Williamson Act.” Correa added.

Correa is focused on the improvement of her county, which is evident by her involvement in numerous community events and community organizations.

“I believe you have to be involved in the community,” said Correa, “thats why I say ‘I shop, work, and play in my community’, this is my home and I need to support it.”

Looking forward, as the Assessor of Colusa County, Correa hopes to utilize the department’s resources better, and providing enhanced communication, and training.

“Our office can be more efficient with additional training in software, and providing our tax payers with the best information available to help them understand their taxes.”

Committing herself to her job and to Colusa County, Correa aims to keep agriculture strong within our county and will continue to manage, establish and direct the programs and operations within the Assessor’s Office.

“I believe my years of experience, leadership, and dedication to the department, qualify me for the possession of Assessor.” Correa added, “I will make well informed, fair decisions that will benefit our citizens.”

A lifelong resident of Colusa County, Arnold Gross Jr., believes that both his management and extensive ap-praisal experience makes him the best choice for Colusa County Assessor.

Since 1984, Gross has worked with the Colusa County Assessor’s office, and wishes to continue the great ser-vice his office provides.

“I strongly believe the taxpayers of Colusa County deserve an Assessor candidate who has both Management and extensive Appraisal experience,” said Gross.

Presently, Gross is the Chief Supervising Appraiser, a position he has held for the last eight years.

“I started as an Appraiser 1, then moved up the rank until I became the Chief Supervising Appraiser,” said Gross, “I currently supervise the appraisal staff and our Auditor.”

Gross has a degree in Agriculture Business.

Citing having earned his Advanced Appraiser certificate from the State Board of Equalization, Gross is also ex-perienced in Residential, Commercial, Industrial and farm Appraisals.

“I oversee Real property Assessment Appeals in which we have the Lowest in the state because we work with the taxpayers to explain the Appraisal process in an open and honest way,” said Gross, “I am also in Charge of the Williamson Act that lowers the taxes for land owners and farmers in the County.”

In 2008 when the Residential real estate market crashed, Gross credits himself for helping Colusa County Tax-payers,

“As the supervisor of real property values, I was proactive in lowering the values of the taxpayers of Colusa County. This resulted in very few assessment Appeals,” said Gross.

Gross is committed to Colusa County which is evident by his involvement in youth sports, community events, and organizations.

“The Assessor’s primary job is to locate, identify and value taxable property in the county,” said Gross.

Looking forward, as the Assessor of Colusa County, Gross believes that his direct extensive appraisal back-ground and managerial experience will allow him to do the job well.

“I have been preparing for this role for the past 29 years,” said Gross, “Colusa County needs to be confident with an Assessor who can answer all of their appraisal or valuation questions, and with my direct experience I can do the job on day one.”
