Hall County Tax Commissioner Darla Eden plans to run for a third term.
“With service, efficiency and accountability as our foundation, we have worked hard to bring a private-sector best practices mindset to a traditional government agency,” Eden said in a statement. “Now I want to reinforce a future legacy that benefits all Hall County taxpayers as the county continues to grow.”
Eden said some highlights of her first two terms include the implementation of the state’s new driver record system, more convenience with online payments and a self-service tag kiosk and a 99.9% property tax collection rate.
She said she has also focused on community relationships.
“Local residents are required by law to meet their tax obligations, but I still believe they should be shown the same respect that any business does for its own customers,” Eden said. “That’s how I was raised and it’s how I’ve always conducted business.”
Eden is a lifelong resident of Gainesville and Hall County, and she was first elected to the position in 2012.
