Meet the Determined Candidates: Randall Stone

CHICO – Randall Stone has built his entire career on understanding finance, the housing market, and government.

The former Chico Mayor has 20 years of experience in planning and real estate and looks forward to bringing his knowledge and background to the Butte County appraiser’s seat.

“I’ve been in the real estate business for the past 20 years,” Stone said. “I’ve owned and operated my own financial planning firm as well as an affordable housing developer in the state of California and run a real estate brokerage for the better part of those 20 years.”

During this time, Stone has supervised three to 250 employees. At the top of his career in the private sector, Stone has had eight years as a member of the Chico City Council and as the city’s mayor.

Stone’s education has its roots in public administration.

“I have a distinguished master’s degree from (Chico State) in public administration with a special emphasis on housing and real estate,” Stone said. “So that’s what I studied, that’s what I’ve done my entire professional career.”

Stone said he has received support from both sides of the political aisle and wants to make a positive difference to the evaluator’s position.

“It’s about making sure we are fair and accurate and treat taxpayers fairly,” Stone said. “And we’re not doing that right now. We’re getting less of that.”

One of Stone’s primary concerns is the lack of big business auditing in Butte County. He said it’s been a decade since the assessor’s office did this.

“So when you think about the fiscal impact we’re going to have on our tax entities in our particular districts or school districts as well as counties and all the different cities, we know that’s a part of how much revenue we’re giving up. is a quantitative number. Table.”

Stone said he would like to see more communication between the assessor’s office and municipal jurisdictions such as Butte County and city governments.

“We no longer work with those stakeholders in the assessor’s office,” Stone said. “I can clearly remember those eight years as mayor and councilor trying to determine what our revenue conditions in the city would be and what we weren’t listening to and what we should be doing, He’s hearing from the assessors’ office on whether that fiscal impact is going to last for the full year.”

Stone is running for Butte County Assessor against Alyssa Douglass and Michael Howard. Voting will be held on June 7.
