AMONG THE MANY HATS THAT VIRGINIA GABERT WEARS on Hawley’s behalf is the title, Assessors’ Clerk. This means that she toils
for hours wrestling with the details of valuing properties and taking
care of many of the Town’s interactions with the Massachusetts Department of Revenue regarding revenues and taxation.
Recently, Virginia was recognized at the State level for her contributions to the Town of Hawley Board of Assessors. The setting was the Summit View Restaurant in Holyoke on September 28, and the occasion was a meeting of Assessors’ Clerks from the western half of the state.
Virginia was named Assessors’ Clerk of the Year, and was presented with a plaque by MAAO, the Massachusetts Association Of Assessing Officers.
Be sure to congratulate Virginia next time you’re in the Town Office, and check out the shiny new plaque on display above her desk.
