To the Editor: Tax Relief for Elderly 


I wish to extend my deepest gratitude to the more than 350 folks who have put their names on the line and endorsed the Petition to expand and simplify Albemarle County’s Real Estate Tax Relief (RETR) program for the elderly and disabled.

Together we are having an impact.

Here in the White Hall District, Both Supervisor Ann Mallek and her political challenger Brad Rykal are on record in support of the RETR expansion outlined in the Petition.

Jennifer Matheny, Albemarle County’s Chief of Revenue Administration, oversees the RETR program.  She graciously convened a working meeting this September where we discussed expanding RETR eligibility to more homeowners.  Supervisor Mallek, Interim CFO Jacob Sumner, and Revenue Analyst Robert Wilson each provided useful information and their valued perspectives.

Help us reach our goal of 1,000 signatures.  Speak out at Board of Supervisors meetings this fall. We can make this happen!
