Tina S. Silverman is running for Assessor, Town of East Hampton

Tina S. Silverman

Silverman said she wants to apply her consulting experience to analyze the assessors office operations and find best practices. She said she wants to modernize the office, including by creating a more user-friendly website and by upgrading other technology, such as by utilizing a geographic information system that would eliminate the need for site visits. Silverman said she would want to look into a town-wide reassessment because its a very expensive process. The landscape has changed so much in East Hampton, and its a question of fairness, Silverman said. We have to make sure everyone is taxed fairly, especially seniors.

Silverman, 67, is running on the Republican party line. She received a bachelors degree in international relations and a masters degree in business administration from George Washington University. She served in the White House twice, first as a writer in President Ronald Reagans administration and then as a staffer on the U.S. Trade Administration under George H.W. Bush. She also served as a policy analyst for the Pentagon, a staffer on the U.S. China Commission and a government consultant. Silverman, who lives in an unincorporated section of town, retired in 2008 from independent national security consulting. She is on the board of the Southampton Cultural Center and is fluent in French.
