As your Assessor-Recorder, I will emphasize equitable assessments and proactive service to the public. I will emphasize the State’s recommendations as outlined in the December 2017 San Joaquin County Assessment Practices Survey. I have direct experience with the nine recommendations stated in this survey by the State Board of Equalization.
I will advocate for proactive outreach to the public regarding the impact of property tax assessments and Prop 13 on our communities. We will never offer legal opinions. We will only state the facts.
I will emphasize fiscal responsibility regarding the Assessor’s Office current $10 million departmental budget.
The job of the Assessor is take inventory and fairly assess all taxable real and business property. Additionally in San Joaquin County, this role oversees the efficient recordation of deeds.
I will work collaboratively with staff to ensure assessments are derived fairly and equitably without undo influence and to maximize the efficiency for the public to record deeds and other important documents.
I will continually work for the public’s benefit and I would be honored to have your vote!
