"The Power to Tax is the Power to Destroy"
By, Cheif Justice John Marshall


Who Is Tim Muetterties?

Tim’s Family moved to Calaveras County when Tim was in the 7th Grade. He attended Hazel Fischer School which is now Independence Hall in White Pines. In May of 2018 Tim will be starting his 40th year in the real estate industry. Tim’s accomplishments and involvement in local and state organizations are chronicled over 23+ years as a state director for the California Association of Realtors.

Why Is Tim Running?

“A poor Manager can take good staff and destroy it causing the best employees to flee and the remainder to lose all motivation”. During the recovery efforts, in the aftermath of the Butte Fire in September of 2015, it quickly became clear that there were issues with the leadership in the Assessor’s Office that were not only affecting Butte Fire Victims; it was also financially impacting the County, Taxpayers, and our Schools in a negative way. The issue is NOT with Staff, but with leadership. Staff does not make policy, leadership does. While the inner workings of the Assessor’s Office are considered ‘confidential’, as recovery efforts continued the stories pertaining to problems within the Assessor’s office started to come to light. 

Tim has been self-employed and working in the private sector for over 40 years.
As a Real Estate Broker and Business Owner you go to work every day, knowing you must treat the public with respect and seek positive relationships to be successful.
I would apply these same principals if I am elected to the office of Assessor.
One of the reasons I am seeking the position of Assessor is because of public outcry of set policies in the Department.  Setting a much friendlier environment for the department will provide Employees and the public with a positive and pleasant experience.  

What Does Tim Muetterties Stand For and Believe In?

Tim is a very staunch supporter and champion of private property rights and has spent 23+ years of his career as a state director fighting legislation attacking private property rights, and sponsoring pro property rights legislation and candidates.  Additionally, Tim is very concerned about current efforts to undermine and/or remove our current protections under Prop 13. Tim is a fiscal conservative who is also pro-business and pro quality growth. Tim believes that a true leader leads from the front and not the rear.  A true leader is there to solve problems so that staff can concentrate on the tasks before them. Regardless of the power that the position brings you must never forget who put you there and who pays your salary…the taxpayers of Calaveras County.


Tim, would be honored to have neighborhood gatherings and invitations to come and speak with you or your group.

If you are interested in hosting a meet and greet, please call Tim on his cell at 209-770-4993.
