Three candidates are competing for the Republican nomination for the position of Huntington County Assessor.

Joan Stoffel and Donald Schoeff are going up against incumbent Terri Boone for the position.

The assessor is responsible for determining the assessed value of all properties in the county and to confirm those values with the county auditor. The assessor also handles taxpayer property assessment appeals. The assessor only establishes the value of the property and has nothing to do with the tax rate.

One of those candidates is Joan Stoffel.
