Incumbent Palm Beach County Tax Collector Anne M. Gannon recently kicked off her 2024 campaign by filing for re-election.
“Today, I am honored to launch my re-election to serve another term as the Constitutional Tax Collector for Palm Beach County. My focus continues to be exceptional service for the more than 1.4 million residents of Palm Beach County, and I am looking forward to continuing my efforts to bring enhancements to the office,” Gannon said. “I am proud of the work we do to protect taxpayer dollars through money-saving initiatives and our efforts to recover and collect millions of tax dollars owed to the citizens of Palm Beach County.”
Gannon, a Democrat, is proud of the many enhancements that she has delivered to advance the capabilities of the services her office provides. From offering greater online transactions to innovative vehicle registration kiosks in several Publix stores throughout Palm Beach County, her priority is to make it easier for residents to do business with her office.
Gannon places tremendous value on client feedback to help better understand clients’ needs and to enhance her agency’s performance. In fact, each month, her office distributes more than 40,000 client satisfaction surveys to clients who visit a service center or contact the office by phone. She and her team are proud that, on average, 79 percent of survey respondents rate their interaction with the office as positive. This compares to a national average of 62 percent for similar local government offices.
Leading a team of more than 320 employees across six locations, employee health and wellness are important to Gannon, and her wellness initiative is designed to reduce the incidence of chronic disease. As a result of her efforts, the office was awarded the “Fit Friendly Workplace” designation in 2015 by the American Heart Association.
Gannon is proud of the many awards her agency has received, including her seventh-straight Legacy Award for “Excellence and Innovation in Financial Operations” from the Florida Tax Collectors Association. In addition, her agency has been awarded multiple awards in recognition of the outstanding communication and marketing materials published and available to the residents of Palm Beach County.
Gannon has called Palm Beach County home for more than 30 years. She attended Florida Atlantic University, where she majored in political science. She also attended Barry University and Palm Beach State College, where she studied business administration.
Gannon began her career in public service in 2000 when she was elected to the Florida Legislature. She is most proud of her role in creating and funding domestic violence centers and creating legislation making human trafficking a crime in Florida.
An avid gardener, Gannon is honored to have been appointed to the board of directors for the Mounts Botanical Garden of Palm Beach County. She is also a member of the Delray Beach Chamber of Commerce and served 12 years on the board of directors for JFK Medical Center.
