"The taxpayers of the Santa Clarita Valley need to have their homes protected and as Assessor, that is what I will do," said John Morris.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 01, 2014
Saying that the choice was 'clear,' the Santa Clarita Valley Signal joined many of Santa Clarita's leaders including County Supervisor Mike Antonovich, California Board of Equalization Member George Runner, State Senator Steve Knight, Assemblyman Scott Wilk, and elected and business leaders from the city of Santa Clarita and surrounding area in backing Head Deputy District Attorney John Morris for Los Angeles County Assessor.
"The taxpayers of the Santa Clarita Valley need to have their homes protected and as Assessor, that is what I will do," said John Morris. "Prop 13 protects home values and insures a fair and predictable property tax. As assessor, I will make sure that Prop 13 is fully and transparently implemented so that taxpayers can have faith that their taxes are being carefully spent."
Calling the choice 'clear', the Santa Clarita Valley Signal on September 28, 2014, endorsed John Morris for Los Angeles County Assessor becoming the tenth media outlet in the county to do so. Noting that the office holds tremendous influence, the Signal also cited Morris's long career in the District Attorney's Office as proof of his commitment and integrity.
"Los Angeles County has a $1.1 trillion property tax assessment roll because of the hard work and ingenuity of Angelenos across our great county," explained John Morris. "During my 24-year career as a prosecutor, I have had the great experience of working in many communities across our county helping to protect our neighborhoods, stop medical and insurance scams, and introduce new technology that speeds trials. As assessor, I will put that commitment to work for every taxpayer by implementing laws like Prop 13."
