I am pleased to be a part of this partnership and look forward to the next 20 years as we bring the future to the present,” Assessor Petersen continued.
Jay Taranto, Executive Vice President at Vision, stated, “Maricopa County is one of the largest high profile and progressive assessment jurisdictions in the Country and we are very excited to be working with Paul Petersen and his staff.
