“John Wright has not only faithfully served our community as Tulsa County Assessor, he also has a robust record from the state legislature that demonstrates his commitment to conservative values. We must have proven conservatives at every level of government. I am proud to endorse John as he continues to diligently serve the great people of Tulsa County.”

Rep. Kevin Hern
U.S. Congress (OK-01)

“I worked with John Wright for five years in the Assessor’s Office, and consider him to be a man of excellence, strong work ethic and integrity. Not only does John hold accreditation on both a local & national level, he also understands what it takes to run the Assessor’s Office in a manner that best serves the taxpayer. I would be honored to continue serving alongside John Wright as a fellow elected official in Tulsa County.”

Don Newberry
Tulsa County Court Clerk

“John Wright is highly respected by assessors across the state for his wisdom, knowledge, and integrity. In addition to serving Tulsa County the last twelve years, John has been a valuable asset to the Oklahoma Assessors Association and a very involved member of the Oklahoma Chapter of the International Association of Assessing Officers.”

Sandy Hodges
Wagoner County Assessor

“Philosophical positions may differ on occasion, but the ability to conduct civil discourse on challenging issues is, in my estimation, a hallmark of John Wright’s service to the people of Oklahoma and Tulsa County. We fully and exclusively support (only) John Wright’s candidacy for Tulsa County Assessor.”

Genny and Dr. Kirby Lehman
former Jenks Public Schools Superintendent

“I met John Wright more than eleven years ago and in the time since that first encounter, I have come to know a man who conducts his daily business with the utmost integrity and performs those duties with both humbleness and grace. His unwavering core beliefs guide him on his unparalleled path.

John has gone above and beyond the normal protocol to learn the “ins and outs” of the assessment industry, taking hours of advanced instruction to equip himself for this important calling.

In my professional opinion, John Wright is still the most qualified person to fulfill the duties of Tulsa County Assessor and will serve the constituents of Tulsa County in a fair and unwavering manner.”

Todd Mathes
Assessor for Washington County since 2001

“I’ve had the privilege of knowing John for the last 12 years. During this time I found him to be someone of strong faith and conviction, and a person of wise counsel. His legislative experience has been an asset to both the Tulsa County Assessor’s Office and the County Assessor Association of Oklahoma.

I have absolutely no hesitation in endorsing John Wright to be re-elected as Tulsa County Assessor!”

Matthew J. Wehmuller, MBA
Assessor for Canadian County

“I have known John Wright since his days in the Oklahoma Legislature. The integrity John displayed as a legislator was clearly evident at the Capitol. The public must have confidence and trust in their government or we have nothing. Since becoming a part of the Tulsa County Assessor’s Office, John’s commitment and integrity have been just as strong as always. This is why I believe that John Wright is an unequaled and clear choice to continue serving as Tulsa County Assessor. Please join me in supporting John Wright for re-election as Tulsa County Assessor.”

Wade Patterson
Retired Garfield County Assessor

“I’ve known John Wright for the last 24 years. He has always approached his responsibilities with intelligence, a strong work ethic, integrity and conscientiousness in service to the public.”

Fred Perry

“I am honored to endorse John Wright for re-election as Tulsa County Assessor. John is a man of integrity and is competent and responsible who will understand he serves the people if re-elected to this position. John Wright has been a champion for the people of Tulsa County.”

“I’ve known John Wright for over 24 years. He is a man of high integrity with a passion to serve people.”

Gary Stanislawski
Retired State Senator

“I am writing this letter in support of the current Tulsa County assessor, John Wright. I have been with the assessor’s office and part of the Assessor’s Association for 24 years. In that time, I have had the pleasure of meeting and working with many assessors, including Wright.

He has not only served his county and his association well, but has become a mentor and a friend to me personally. Wright’s dedication to learning and understanding every aspect of the ad valorem process extends to all of his staff.

Under his leadership, the Tulsa County Assessor’s Office has created and shaped leaders within the office who want to serve the community and the taxpayers with the same heart that Wright has for the people of Tulsa County.

Wright believes in following the law, treating taxpayers fairly and equitably, and doing the right thing all the time. Because of these qualities, the Assessor’s Association elected him onto their executive board, where he serves the association with the same integrity with which he serves his county.

I urge the citizens of Tulsa County to support Wright, my friend, as he seeks re-election as their county assessor.”

Mandy Snyder
Noble County Assessor

“Fairness and competency are hallmarks of good public servant and Tulsa County Assessor John A. Wright gets high marks on both counts.

As inflation drastically affects Tulsa County’s housing market, Wright and his staff have done an excellent job of determining market value of property and assigning the assessed valuation, which is the basis of the size of property taxes. The assessor doesn’t set tax rates or collect taxes.

It’s a big job in Tulsa County.

Wright took office on December 1, 2018, from the late Ken Yazel. Wright was completely prepared for the job after serving in the Assessor’s Office for eight years.

Wright spent 12 years as a state representative (1998-2010) and he brings that perspective to his current office. He understands legal proposals concerning property taxes and he is an advocate for the property owner. Wright was one of the most conservative legislators, especially in fiscal matters.

Even before that, Wright’s time in the private sector as a licensed real estate broker is invaluable in helping him lead, especially with complicated land issues.

Tulsa is lucky to have someone like Wright who knows how to run his office and is diligent in getting the job done.

Wright’s outspoken Christian faith is a testimony to his fairness. He has no problem if a property owner wants to dispute a valuation.

As Tulsa County deals with rampant inflation, food shortages, illegal immigration, the Chinese coronavirus and other problems attributed to the Biden Administration, it is reassuring to know that someone like John Wright is running the Assessor’s Office.

The Tulsa Beacon endorses Tulsa County Assessor John Wright for re-election.”
