Johnson would be a good assessor

1976 was a bit of a banner year in our household. Momma and I, married for a bit over 21 years, were making plans for the wedding of our eldest daughter. As a beginning, the new lives together was to be documented by a young new business, operating out of a home on Highlawn Avenue, Johnson Photography.

A feisty and energetic young’un was also there. His name was (and still is) Irv. The Photo Studio, the model of our cars, the places we live have changed a good bit. And a lot of barges have gone up and down the Ohio River since then. However, one thing that has not changed. That is integrity. And that is what you will find with Irv Johnson. From his parents, he learned well.

Ottie Adkins is retiring and leaving the Assessor’s Office in excellent shape. Our heartfelt thanks to Ottie for his dedicated service. May your retirement be as successful as your many different services to your fellow man.

Irv Johnson will maintain the standard that is in place in the Assessor’s Office. And, if possible, improve on it. To Irv it will be a full-time position. Not a part-time adventure as some on the Cabell County Commission seem to treat their charge.

In my opinion, your vote will not be wasted by voting for Irv Johnson for Cabell County assessor. I urge you to do just that — vote for Irv Johnson, Assessor, Cabell County.
