From Local Sources

Dubois County Deputy Assessor Angie Giesler of Jasper has filed her candidacy to run for Dubois County Assessor on the Democrat ticket for the 2018 election.

County assessors must meet certain Indiana State certification requirements. Giesler has already fulfilled those requirements by completing all the necessary work to become a Level III Assessor-Appraiser

While working in the assessor’s office for the past 11 years I have grown to understand the great importance of running an efficient office. Funding for all countyservices depends on the assessor’s office certifying market value assessments on time so the budgeting process can proceed. I am confident that I can perform the duties that the office requires in a professional manner,” Giesler said upon announcing her filing.

“My past work experience, Level III Assessor-Appraiser certification and knowledge of county government are the reasons I am an excellent choice to be the Dubois County AssessorI look forward to continue serving the citizens of Dubois County,” she said.

Giesler is a Northeast Dubois High School graduate and attended Indiana University. 

Her memberships include St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, St. Ann’s Society, Daughters of Isabella, Association of Indiana County Assessors, International Association of Assessing Officers and Dubois County Tax Abatement Committee. She was a former member of the Dubois County Property Tax Assessment Board of Appeals.    

Giesler has been married to Jeffrey E. Giesler for 32 years. 

They have two children, Leah (Christopher) Birk and Dane Giesler. She is the daughter of Rita Clare (Merkel) Seng and the late Urban H. Seng.  Her in-laws are Sylvester and Irene (Theising) Giesler.
