"I have spent my entire career working with peace officers and chiefs across Los Angeles County to charge, convict, incarcerate, and then ultimately keep behind bars criminals that have defrauded taxpayers and threatened families," said John Morris.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 11, 2014
After 24 years of protecting families, taxpayers, and insurance ratepayers from criminals ranging from gang thugs to white collar insurance frauds, Head Deputy District Attorney John Morris is proudly announcing the support of key law enforcement leaders in Los Angeles County, including the Los Angeles County Police Chiefs Association PAC and the California Correctional Peace Officers Association.
"I have spent my entire career working with peace officers and chiefs across Los Angeles County to charge, convict, incarcerate, and then ultimately keep behind bars criminals that have defrauded taxpayers and threatened families," said John Morris. "It is an honor to have the strong endorsement of these two groups in my campaign to protect every resident of Los Angeles County as the next Assessor."
Los Angeles County taxpayers have created a $1.1 trillion property assessment roll, one of the largest single tax rolls of its kind in the world. The Los Angeles County Assessor is in charge of managing the system of assessment for each property, largely in accordance with Prop 13 and other measures, and providing a system for swift appeal of the office's decisions.
"The Assessor is an elected position because taxpayers wanted the official in charge of valuing their property to be directly responsible to them," explained Morris. "Since 1978, the taxpayers of California have turned property tax into the single largest source of government revenue in the state and the fastest category of state government revenue in the country. Taxpayers are right to feel they need to be protected and as their Assessor I will do just that."
