Belinda Hazel Assessor

The job of Assessor is important. Decisions of the Assessor impact every property owner and impact the funding of local government. There is little time for a learning curve. The Assessor needs to be confident and level-headed, experienced and qualified, and needs to understand the principles and methodologies required to do the job from day one. The Assessor needs to be involved at the state level monitoring legislation and regulations impacting local assessments. I have an understanding of the job. I've been involved at the state level. I have a combination of education and work experience that uniquely qualifies me. On top of that, I simply like the work and will be dedicated to the job.

I am a licensed Appraiser, a licensed Broker, and a certified Deputy Assessor. I was the District 1 Louisiana Tax Commissioner for four years on the five-member commission that oversees Assessors. I heard property tax appeals and oversaw changes to the rules and regulations for Assessors statewide. My career has been spent researching and valuing properties in Plaquemines Parish, and I am excited at the opportunity to use my expertise to continue to uphold the integrity of the Plaquemines Parish Assessor's Office.

Dear Plaquemines Parish Residents,

It is an honor and a privilege to have been elected to serve as the next Plaquemines Parish Assessor. I would like to extend my heartfelt thanks to all who supported the campaign.

My priority for the Assessor’s office is to uphold the integrity of the tax base. Because of the integrity of the tax base, our parish’s millage rate is consistently one of the lowest in the state.

My vision for the Assessor’s office is that it be an agency that takes care of business…from day-to-day record management to reassessment to rulemaking in Baton Rouge…all the while serving the public in an efficient and courteous manner.

I look forward to working hard as your next Assessor, maintaining the trust and respect of the citizens of Plaquemines Parish.

Thank You,

Belinda Hazel
