“As a former Boulder County Assessor myself, and on behalf of my colleagues on the Board of County Commissioners, I want to thank Jerry for his many years of outstanding service to Boulder County,” said County Commissioner Cindy Domenico. “Being County Assessor is a tireless job, and through all the years we’ve worked together, Jerry has always conducted his work and led his office in the most professional, fair, and honest manner.
