Summary

Commitment to lowest Property Taxes for homes and businesses. 

I am committed to achieving the lowest permissible property taxes on your home or business. I strongly support ballot initiative requiring corporations to pay their fair share of property taxes, therefore I am not a member of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association. The Alameda County Assessor appraises 456,000 parcels with tax role valuations of $265 billion, and 47,000 business personal property accounts. I have successfully managed large, publicly accountable, organizations.

 

Dealing with complex appraisal issues demands more than a high school diploma. My education includes: Master Business Administration - Finance; Juris Doctor (Law degree); and a Bachelor of Science Civil Engineering.

I have been a member of Alameda County Property Tax Assessment Appeals Board since 2010, writing legal findings and establishing valuation for hundreds of properties. I am an attorney (California Bar) focused on establishing valuations for hundreds of properties.

 

My family has been in Alameda County since 1885. I will run an effective and responsive Alameda County Assessor Office.

I respectively ask for your vote.
