Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) March 31, 2014
Having spent his career saving millions for taxpayers and insurance ratepayers by prosecuting criminals and stopping fraud, John Morris' campaign for Assessor received a major boost with the endorsement of the Los Angeles Police Chiefs’ Association PAC.
"Over my 23-year career prosecuting criminals whether hardened, violent gang members or white collar criminals who drove up rates for insurance ratepayers, I have worked with many police departments and their chiefs," said John Morris. "This endorsement means a great deal to me."
Representing the latest in a string of major endorsements in the last few weeks, John Morris’ campaign message of reforming the presently troubled Assessor's office by making it more transparent and easy-to-use, while guaranteeing it operate at the highest ethical level has taken hold with voters and community leaders alike.
"Our campaign is really coming together because people understand that we have an ongoing ethical issue in Los Angeles County that needs to be addressed," said John Morris. "The only way you can enforce laws that taxpayers rely on like Prop 13 is to ensure that every law is upheld at the highest levels."
On his first day in office, John Morris will implement an executive policy, currently missing, that if the Assessor cannot serve because of pending criminal charges, he/she forfeits his/her salary and benefits. After the placement of the policy, he will campaign for the enactment of the policy into law.
"If a CEO is accused of misusing corporate assets, often times the court will bar them from having any access to the assets of the corporation," explained Morris. "In the private sector, misuse of office does not result in paid vacation, and when I am elected, this practice will be stopped in government and taxpayers will be protected."
