Renea Adams Peters is announcing her intentions to become a candidate for the office of Washington County property appraiser. The office is being vacated by Gil Carter, who has announced his retirement.

Renea, a lifelong resident of Washington County, is a 1988 graduate of Chipley High School.  She began her career in the property appraiser’s office January 2, 1997, under the supervision of Ronald Wright and now serves as chief deputy appraiser.

Renea is the daughter of Carlton Adams and the late JoAnn Odom Adams. She is married to Tony Peters.  They are active members of the First Baptist Church Chipley. They have two children, JoAnna (Dustin) Larkin and Justin (Gabby) Peters, and four grandchildren.

After completing many appraisal courses, Peters has achieved certification by the State of Florida in this field and is a member of the International Association of Assessing Officers.

Peters said she would like to sustain the quality of the property appraiser’s office through integrity, honesty, and experience. 

“I have over 26 years of experience in the day-to-day operations of your property appraiser’s office, and I am dedicated to the people of Washington County. I feel this experience qualifies me to be your next property appraiser,” she said. “It would be my honor and privilege as your next property appraiser to continue to treat the citizens of Washington County with respect and understanding and to deliver the outstanding customer service you deserve.”

Renea would like to thank all who have given her encouragement for her candidacy and asks for voters’ support during the upcoming elections.
