Adkins will not seek re-election as Crisp Tax Commissioner

CORDELE ­— Long-time Crisp County Tax Commissioner Cricket Adkins announced in a press release Monday that she will not be seeking re-election this term.
Adkins has served in that capacity for the past 20 years and will be retiring the end of 2016.
“I just want to thank all of Crisp County for allowing me to serve as your tax commissioner for so many years,” said Adkins. “It truly has been a great experience, getting to know the people of Crisp County and I hope that I have not disappointed God or any of the citizens of this community.”
Adkins said there have been more changes in the Motor Vehicle Department in the last 20 years than in its entire history.
“We have gone from the first part of the year registrations to renewals on birthdays,” she said. “That was the biggest change of them all.”
She said the property tax division has mostly stayed the same, except for the exemptions. Seniors, 65 and older, as of January 1st, are now allowed to apply for a senior exemption which is $20,000 for school taxes and $10,000 for county. She said there is no state tax.
As far as her plans for retirement, Adkins says she is looking forward for the opportunity to spend more time with family and doing more in the community.
