Assessment plunge of $41,000 sure is a significant change

Dear editor,

Recently both local newspapers ran stories about the issuing of 2012 property assessments.

The headline was that there was no significant change.

Excuse me.

My assessment went down $41,000, a drop of 12 per cent.   Everybody I talk to who owns a house says their assessment is much lower than 2011. Where are you people getting your information from?
