Why Me?

I work for the public benefit. From the homeowner to business owner, the Assessor’s Office is here to serve you! I’ve always kept this mindset with the Alameda County Assessor’s Office as staff and Supervising Appraiser.

Proactive outreach to the community!  I will emphasize community-friendly literature and workshops regarding Prop 13 and property assessments. We will never offer legal opinions, but will state the facts on how assessments are derived.

Overall, My goal is to make this agency approachable for underserved communities and all residents of San Joaquin County!

Prop 60 and Prop 90 advocate! I will advocate to the San Joaquin County Board of Supervisors to pass Prop 60 and 90 ordinances already passed by the State. This is a voluntary program each County must agree to participate in. Prop 60 and 90 allows for property owners 55+ years old intercounty and intracounty base transfers for replacement dwellings. Property owners age 55 and older should have the option to transfer lower base values of their previous primary residence if they move within or into San Joaquin County.

Transparency. All taxpayers should be informed regarding the processes and rationale in their property tax assessments.

I am committed! I’ve been married for 18 years, raising 3 kids and rose through the ranks of the Alameda County Assessor’s Office. I’ve been a basketball coach for years, dedicating my time to the youth. I’m a child of Filipino immigrants who had to prove himself in every aspect of my life! I graduated from The University of Michigan. I migrated to California and built a good life in Mountain House!  I am a committed person who doesn’t run away from challenges!

Assessor’s Office Experience! I’ve risen through the ranks of the Alameda County Assessor’s Office the last 13+ years, the last 7+ years as Supervising Appraiser. I’ve resolved various assessment issues including: Legal Entity transfers, trust transfers, new construction assessments, calamity assessments, appeal cases, roll corrections, value allocations, mapping changes, CLCA contracts, deed recordations. All of these topics are the realities of working in an Assessor’s office that I have experienced first-hand as staff and as Supervisor.

Fresh Perspective.  Along with my experience, I bring new energy into this agency. I am candidate with both a fresh perspective and Assessor’s Office Supervising experience!

I would be honored to have your vote!
