KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Jackson County, Missouri, named a new deputy director to its Assessment Department on Thursday, officials said.

Maureen Monaghan was named to the position, in which she'll oversee the reassessment process.

Monaghan worked for the State Tax Commission for more than a decade. There, she played a role in "ensuring uniform and equitable assessment of all taxable, tangible property in the state" as legal counsel, the county said in a news release.

Monaghan also served as assistant prosecutor in Cole County, Missouri.

Jackson County Executive Frank White, Jr. said he believes Monaghan will be a "valuable assest to Jackson County,"

"During the 2019 reassessment, I witnessed her understanding of the process, passion for the law and commitment to do what’s right," White said in the release. "Her expertise combined with that of our County Assessor and staff will strengthen our operations, ensuring that we continue conducting property reassessments that are fair and accurate.”

Monaghan begins her new job April 1.
