Assessor Candidate shares extensive background

Dear Residents of Bienville Parish,

As the runoff election is in progress, I’d like to reintroduce myself. I am Catherine D. Perritt, I was born in Louisiana but raised in The Woodlands, Texas. My family’s legacy led me to Louisiana Tech University where I earned my GIS degree, in 2014. I then embarked on a fulfilling career as the GIS Coordinator for the Bienville Parish Assessor’s Office, thanks to Mr. Jimmie D. Smith’s trust.

Over the years, I’ve honed my skills under the guidance of Ms. Carol Brown, earning the distinction of a Certified Louisiana Deputy Assessor.

Not only am I a dedicated public servant, but I’m also a loving wife to Justin Perritt (the Blue Bell Man) and a devoted mother to Lucas Perritt. Our family proudly resides in Arcadia.

The Assessor’s office plays a crucial role in our community, we are responsible for the identification, listing, and fair valuation of all properties for ad valorem taxation. These duties are bound by the constitution of the state of Louisiana and the revised statutes enacted by our legislature.

My mission is clear: to ensure uniform and equitable property assessments, benefiting both our taxpayers and the essential taxing districts of Bienville Parish. With over nine years of experience, I’ve actively contributed to two reassessment cycles.

Should I be elected, rest assured that I recognize the importance of keeping our community well- informed. I pledge that our office will remain readily accessible for any questions or concerns you may have regarding your property.

I am fully dedicated to translating this mission into action. Therefore, I humbly ask for your confidence, support, and vote in the upcoming election on November 18th.

Catherine Perritt, CLDA
