Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) May 09, 2014
Citing his backbone and integrity, the Los Angeles Times today endorsed Head Deputy District Attorney John Morris to be the next Assessor for Los Angeles County.
"Our campaign is gaining a huge amount of traction because we are building a broad based group of leaders committed to protecting taxpayers and creating a responsive, updated Assessor's office," said John Morris. "It is an honor to have the LA Times endorsement and be able to communicate that with voters."
In their endorsement of Morris, the LA Times editorial board cited the need to update the agency's operation from a decades old computer system while at the same time continuing to foster changes that make this critical agency responsive to the needs of taxpayers.
"The Los Angeles County Assessor is in charge of assessing $1 trillion in property, approximately 25% of the property value in the entire state of California," explained John Morris. "Taxpayers can only be protected with a transparent, responsive agency that utilizes up-to-date technology. I will get the job done."
