Zimmerman Beats Wood in Assessor’s Race

Michael Calhoun

CLAYTON (KMOX) – The numbers show Democrat Jake Zimmerman easily putting away Republican L.K. Wood to become St. Louis County’s first elected Assessor since 1960.

Unofficial returns say Zimmerman beat Wood, 63-to-36 percent.

“I think the first order to business is a top-to-bottom review of systems and processes in that office,” Zimmerman told KMOX at his victory party.

Almost three-quarters of County voters decided last year to take assessment authority away from the County Executive. The infamous “‘drive-by assessments” were a major point of contention.

In their party nomination process, Republicans snubbed veteran politican Gene McNary and instead chose real-estate agent Wood to run for the post.

Wood, however, fell far behind Zimmerman in the fundraising arena and was faced scrutiny for failing to pay his and his company’s property taxes on-time in both St. Louis City and County.
