On Thursday, January 3, Karen Koehler officially turned over her duties as Johnson County Assessor to Terry Keebler, who was elected to office in November. Koehler decided not to run for another term of office following 32 years of dedicated service to Johnson County’s taxpayers.

Koehler was originally encouraged to run for County Assessor in late 1985 by a few business people in Tecumseh. “They felt I had the education and knowledge to do the job,” Koehler said. She earned a B.S. in Business Administration & Accounting from Peru State College in 1982.

Before Koehler could even run for office, she had to take and pass the assessor’s test, which she did in early February 1986, prior to the March 1 deadline for filing. It was a two-part test, morning and afternoon, given in Lincoln by the Department of Revenue, Property Assessment Division.
