Candidate Bios

Patsy Melonakis, Assessor

Married to Chris Melonakis, with two children (Shanan and Shane) and three granddaughters (Samantha, Mackenzie and Cassidy).

  • Currently, Adams County Assessor, elected in November, 2014, took office in January of 2015.
  • SPS Design, LLC, Owner/Designer—12 years licensed with Mack Trucks, Products sold worldwide.
  • Associate Real Estate Broker/Property Management—Hanegan Realty, 24years
  • Sit on the Policy Review Board Adams County
  • Public presentations illustrating the processes followed in the Adams County Assessor’s office

In addition to running my outside businesses, I have the honor of being the first Woman and Republican to hold the office of Adams County Assessor. Four years ago I promised to “Sweep the Office Clean of Corruption and Cronyism” and I HAVE KEPT THAT PROMISE. My office has rooted out and eliminated property valuations based on cronyism, favoritism and political paybacks, resulting in fair property evaluations for the first time in over 40 years. Many of these properties had been valued at less than one-third of their fair market value—hurting our Schools, Fire Districts and other agencies that provide critical services. I will continue to be vigilant in correcting all Adams County properties with improprieties, while striving to improve the processes and procedures followed with the statutory duties of the Assessor’s Office.
