Dave Marino

Office Sought – El Paso County Tax Assessor-Collector

Dave Marino is a retired soldier, Church servant, husband, father and current chair of the El Paso County Libertarian Party. 

Why Dave is Running

El Paso is plagued with the highest property taxes in the state and near the highest in the country. Wouldn’t it be great to have a Tax Assessor-Collector that hates taxes as much as you do? Dave is running to give you another choice on your ballot. No one should run unopposed in this city.
