FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Sandown - G. Philip Blatsos, Commissioner of the New Hampshire Department of
Revenue Administration, was in Sandown Monday night to give residents
information on the revaluation process and how homes are assessed, said
Board of Selectmen Chairman Corey Corbin.
"I was pleased Commissioner Blatsos could take the time to travel to Sandown
and speak to our residents. His insight and knowledge of the revaluation
process really helped our citizens come to understand the reasoning behind
the process," Corbin stated.
"While I understand the thought behind the process, the whole property tax
issue will never be solved until our elected leaders make the commitment to
define adequacy in education. That has never happened before and if I opt
for a second run for the State Senate, you can rest assured it will be my
top priority once elected. We have a bad habit with regard to education
funding in New Hampshire - we know the price of it, but know the value of
it. It's time to "revalue" education and not just the properties that
currently pay for it," Corbin said.
Corey Corbin is currently serving as Chairman of the Sandown Board of
Selectmen, Served as a State Representative from 2000-2004 and was a State
Senate candidate in 2004. Corbin served 8 years as an Infantry Officer in
the US Army and currently owns and operates 2 Manchester restaurants.
