Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 20, 2014
John Morris campaign to defend Proposition 13 as Los Angeles County Assessor gained major backing today with the endorsement of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayers Association.
"We believe you will be an excellent representative for taxpayers and look forward to working with you in the years ahead," said Kris Vosburgh, Executive Director for the Association.
Since the passage of Prop 13 in 1978, property tax collection in California has grown faster than any other major source of state tax revenue. The key mechanism in the law is setting property assessments at 1% of the purchase value of the home and allowing up to a 2% annual increase in value.
"Californians put great faith in Prop 13 because it took politics and personal decisions out of the assessment process," said John Morris. "When I am Assessor, I will introduce reforms that safeguard against internal fraud, speed up appeals, and protect both taxpayers and the hard working professionals within the agency that have been harmed by the fraud of the current Assessor. It is a great honor to have the support of HJTA in this campaign."
