Questions & Answers

1. Please provide a brief list of your qualifications in bullet format, using an asterisk (*) to represent a bullet. (No more than 25 words for this section.)

2. What qualities, skills, and experiences make you well-qualified to be an effective Assessor in L A. County? (no more than 125 words total for questions 2 and 3)

I discovered the County Assessor does very little to reach out to working people. When people aren't fully educated about a process as complicated as tax assessment it means they are most likely paying more than their fair share of property taxes. That's fundamentally unfair and needs to be fixed.

I want to be known as the first Assessor in Los Angeles County history that's not just a bureaucrat but a true advocate for working families and tax payers.

I want the County Assessor's Office to be more open to the public. I want people to be able to at the click of a button or a quick call to fully understand how their property is assessed and how they can lower their taxes.
