Nebraska: Hitchcock County Assessor recall set for November 8
County Assessor Marlene Bedore is facing a November 8 recall vote. Petitioners handed in 526 signatures, they got 466 validated. They needed 410. The issue was a claimed failure to use a professionally accepted mass appraisal technique for valuing property. There is a report that she played favorites and lowered valuation and the state's property tax administrator has recommended probation.
