Amy Bublak has recently announced that she will be running for Stanislaus County Assessor, potentially giving up her seat on the Turlock City Council.

After being approached by multiple community leaders, Bublak decided to run for the position of county assessor, hoping to utilize her years of experience as a city official to better serve the residents of Stanislaus.

“A number of community leaders who I respect suggested that I think about running for this office since they felt I could serve the people well due to my experience as an elected official and my educational background with a master’s in public administration and urban government,” said Bublak.

If elected, Bublak says her goals as county assessor would be to ensure taxpayers are protected while managing her position efficiently. Additionally, Bublak will aim to protect Proposition 13, while delivering fair and timely assessments to the taxpayers of Stanislaus County.

“I will make sure this office adheres strictly to those guidelines,” said Bublak. “I will be accountable to the voters and not fellow bureaucrats.”

Currently in her second term serving on the Turlock City Council, Bublak has extensive experience managing government budgets and dealing with real estate and property issues that affect area homeowners and farmers.

“Before my election to City Council, I was appointed to the Turlock Planning Commission, where I worked to ensure responsible growth,” said Bublak. “This is a key part of our economy and we must have strong management to help this part of our economy recover.”

The primary election in Stanislaus County will be held on June 3, where the top two candidates for each office will be determined to continue on to the general election held in November.

Bublak remains at the center of an ongoing investigation with the FPPC regarding 13 violations of the Political Reform Act that occurred during the 2008 City Council election after illegal robocalls were made targeting candidate and former City Council woman Mary Jackson. Although the case remains under investigation by the FPPC, Bublak has continually asserted her innocence over the past five years, claiming her campaign was not behind the robocalls whatsoever. As per FPPC regulations, all subjects of findings of probable cause are presumed innocent of any violation unless proved in a subsequent administrative hearing.
