Rachel Pence Foster has filed to run for a third term as the Daviess County Property Valuation Administrator.
“I was hired as a deputy to the PVA office in March 2002 and have served as your PVA since December 2013,” she said. “These past years have been an honor and privilege.”
The office is responsible for finding, listing and assessing all real property in Daviess County.
“I have taken a transparent approach to property value by offering a free website for the public,” Foster said. “In addition to the free website, we always answer our phones with a live person and treat everyone fairly and equitably.”

Foster graduated Daviess County High School in 1994, Owensboro Community & Technical College in 1996 and Western Kentucky University in 1998 with a bachelor of science. In addition, she earned her Certified Kentucky Assessors designation in 2016 and Senior Kentucky Assessors designation in 2012.
Foster is a current member of the Owensboro Noon Rotary Club (President 2017/2018), Paul Harris Fellow (Rotary), member of Impact 100 for several years, past member of MLES PTO (president 2013-2015), past board member of The Empowerment Academy, past board member of the Center for Renewable Energy Research and Environmental Stewardship Board, a Kentucky Colonel, past legislative committee member for the PVA Association and proud member of Walnut Memorial Baptist Church.
