Long-time Tax Commissioner Becky Astin announced her intention to seek a fifth term this November. Astin, born and raised in Morgan County, first came into office in 2001, and has been reelected in every election since. Astin first worked for Morgan County government in 1984 as a part-time employee in the Tax Commissioner office. But even then, she aspired to one day becoming the Tax Commissioner herself. “It was always my dream, “said Astin. “There is just something about this job that I love. I love helping people.” “I always have an open door,” continued Astin. “If there’s a problem or people think they have a problem, please come see me. I can’t fix it, if I don’t know what it is,” said Astin. “People know me to be a very honest person. I am going to help you when I can, even if it means telling you the truth you don’t want to hear.”
