A Message from the President

UPDATE: 12/16/2019 Jim Mallon receives a promotion to an Assessor's management position. No longer in a SLOCEA represented bargaining unit, Jim resigns from the Board of Directors and as SLOCEA's president. Thank you Jim for your unwavering dedication and commitment to SLOCEA!

October 16, 2019

When I first joined SLOCEA more than 23 years ago, I never thought I’d end up on the Board of Directors, let alone become president of our 72-year-old organization. But here we are.

For those of you who may not know me, I’m Jim Mallon and I assumed the duties of SLOCEA president in October 2019. I first came into county employment in 1996, when I was hired on as a real estate appraiser in the Assessor’s Office. I am currently serving as a Supervising Appraiser in the same department, overseeing a staff of 10 dedicated, hard-working deputy assessors.

It is an honor and a privilege to serve you as president of SLOCEA.
