"Protections like Prop 13 are largely enacted by the Assessor and when I am in office I will make sure they are fully implemented," said John Morris.
Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) October 24, 2014
In another sign of growing momentum as the election approaches, Los Angeles County Head Deputy District Attorney John Morris was endorsed strongly for Assessor by the Los Angeles Daily News.
"Every paper that backed me in the June primary has now renewed and in many cases strengthened their endorsement for my candidacy in the general election," said John Morris. "It is very exciting to have their support along with that of the voters as vote-by-mail ballots are being cast."
In the June primary, a crowded field outspent Morris four-to-one, yet on the strength of the endorsement of every major newspaper taking a position in the race and his plan to permanently protect taxpayers, remove politics from home valuations, and cut unnecessary spending so precious tax dollars can be spent on schools, roads and police, Morris went on to earn his spot in the November election by a wide margin.
"We have completed millions of voter contacts so far since June. It is clear that home owners, families, small businesses, and most importantly voters from across Los Angeles County understand that I am running to protect them," explained Morris. "I have spent 24 years clearly applying the law and protecting crime victims. I will clearly apply the law and protect taxpayers as Assessor."
In addition to his endorsement in the general election by 10 major media outlets, Morris recently announced the endorsements of dozens of elected officials including San Fernando Valley political legend retired Assemblywoman Paula Boland.
"Los Angeles County throughout the last forty years has been an epicenter of common sense taxpayer protections and open government reforms and many of the leaders of those reforms are backing my campaign because I will bring those type of leadership to the Assessor's office," said John Morris. "Protections like Prop 13 are largely enacted by the Assessor and when I am in office I will make sure they are fully implemented."
