BREVARD COUNTY • WEST MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – Democrat Charlie Sitton has announced his candidacy to run for Brevard County property appraiser.

“I am running for Property Appraiser because I am the most qualified candidate and I know what needs to be done to restore order and integrity to that office,” Sitton said.

“I am not a career politician looking for a pay check. I have spent the bulk of my working life in the appraiser’s office and I know what needs to be fixed and how to fix it.”

Sitton lives in Melbourne and worked in the property appraiser’s office from 1986 to 2007.

He began his career as a field evaluator trainee there and worked his way up to the position of assistant of field operations.

Since October 2007, Sitton has worked as a claims adjuster for Allstate Insurance.

Sitton earned a Bachelor of Arts degree from Berea College in Kentucky and has served as a high school sports official in Brevard County for more than 20 years.

“Customer service is my first priority, after all I work for you,” Sitton said. “I promise that my staff will be receptive, polite, professional, and efficient.”

Sitton is unopposed in the Democratic primary.

Three candidates – incumbent Jim Ford, Dana Blickley and Jason Steele — will square off in the Republican primary in August to run against Sitton in the general election in November.
