Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 03, 2014
Representing the many coastal communities along Long Beach Harbor, legendary leaders Governor George Deukmejian (retired), Rep. Steve Kuykendall (retired), and Long Beach Mayor Frank Colonna (retired) joined dozens of business and community leaders along with the Long Beach Press Telegram in endorsing Head Deputy District Attorney John Morris for Los Angeles County Assessor.
"Long Beach and the harbor communities that surround it have produced a bi-partisan group of leaders that helped introduce many of the good government reforms that are used nationally today," said John Morris. "As the next Assessor, their model of promoting transparent government decision making and always protecting taxpayers is one I will follow everyday."
During his 24-year career as a prosecutor and ultimately as a Head Deputy District Attorney, John Morris has worked to put gangs, thugs, and white collar criminals behind bars while pioneering new technology that speeds trials and helps make the volumes of paperwork used in them more accurate.
"Today, the Los Angeles County Assessor manages and tracks a $1.1 trillion property tax roll that was produced by taxpayers using incredible levels of hard work and innovation," explained John Morris. "I look forward to wisely using technology and better systems to cut unnecessary costs and make the assessment process more fair, accurate, and transparent. By doing that, we will protect every taxpayer."
Earlier this year, the Long Beach Press Telegram called John Morris 'convincing' and cited his plans to institute new systems that could help improve office operations making decisions on property assessments more transparent in their endorsement of his campaign to be the next Assessor for Los Angeles County.
"Prop 13 has provided a stability and transparency to many aspects of the assessment process since its passage in 1978," said John Morris. "I look forward to fully implementing Prop 13 while bringing new systems to the Assessor's office that will help the hard working employees within the office to become more productive while increasing taxpayer protections."
