The Price Is No Longer Right
Tarrant County tax assessor-collector Betsy Price might have assessed and collected her last taxes – she appears on the verge of being replaced.
The Tarrant County Commissioners Court will gather at a special-called meeting at 6 p.m. Friday to consider the appointment of a new assessor-collector.
Price announced her resignation months ago so she could run for Fort Worth mayor. A replacement has yet to be named, even after Price voluntarily gave up her $129,000 annual salary to avoid an appearance of a conflict of interest.
If Price is elected as mayor, she’ll earn $100,000 less than she did with the county — but she’ll get to cut more ribbons, break more ground, kiss more babies, and get to sit in the center chair on the city council dais. Woo hoo!
