Olivia A. Drake

My name is Olivia Drake and I am running for Boundary County Assessor. I am currently the Chief Deputy Assessor and have been the deed processor and cadastral analyst for the past eight years. I plan to maintain an experienced and competent department as the current assessor, Dave Ryals, looks towards retiring after years of dedicated service.

I am a lifelong North Idahoan, having grown up in the Naples area, and my parents were also raised in Boundary County. My dad, Jeff Schauble, worked in the timber industry and my mom, Mona, was a stay-at-home mom before becoming a certified dental assistant.

I obtained an Associate’s Degree from technical school after graduating from BFHS and am always learning. My husband, Lawrence "Scooter" Drake and I currently live in Paradise Valley, where we grow trees and alfalfa on our small family acreage.

Outside of work, I am passionate about outdoor recreation and am dedicated to our local community. I have served with many volunteer organizations including the local Republican Central Committee, 9B Trails, 4H, Boundary Backcountry Access, Beta Sigma Phi and various other committees.

I am running for several reasons, primarily that I am qualified and capable. Don’t take my word for it, instead I would like a chance to earn your trust.

To maintain an equitable assessment process, I will continue to support the employees in the Assessor’s Department who are very knowledgeable in their individual positions. This includes keeping up with local market trends and changes in Idaho Code and administrative rules.

I would like to increase public transparency and ensure that the Assessor’s Office is accountable and open to the public.

Thank you for your support and remember to vote May 17!
