De Noyelles Withdraws from County Tax Assessor Race

There will be one less name on the Smith County election ballot this March.  Smith County Republican Party Chairman John De Noyelles withdrew his name from the race for Smith County Tax Assessor-Collector. De Noyelles made his decision after local businessman Gary Barber decided to run. De Noyelles says he's backing barber.

"He has excellent qualifications and many years of experience dealing with tax and assessment issues," said De Noyelles, "as well as operating a successful small business.  His plans for the office coincide with mine, and he is dedicated to making customer service his top priority, as well as seeing all taxpayers are treated fairly, and pay only what they should."

De Noyelles plans to continue to devote time to his economic development activities, as well as party chairman responsibilities.
