Ongoing dispute prompts Horowitz to run
Retired Vancouver accountant and consultant David Horowitz hadn’t publicly announced his decision to run for Clark County Assessor, so his filing on Tuesday came as a surprise.
Horowitz, 64, said he had been considering whether to run for the seat that’s being vacated by Linda Franklin. He said his wife, Linda, convinced him that he should.
While Horowitz has never run for public office, his wife knows of what she speaks. Linda Horowitz served on the Vancouver City Council from 1990 to ’98.
Horowitz said he’s had an ongoing dispute over an assessed property value, and feels his experience makes him a good fit for the job.
Horowitz was the third Republican to file, joining retired accountant Daniel Weaver and appraiser Peter Van Nortwick.
Janet Seekins, who works as a senior residential appraiser for the office, filed as a Democrat.
