County of Los Angeles' Office of the Assessor
There are a number of homeowners who are unaware of the laws governing property in California. I want to ensure that as many of them as possible are reached through this office. You'll find a few key words below as a starting off point. I've included some links to outside agencies that I feel have done an exemplary job of explaining the material. I believe in using the best resources and information available to me.
Please make sure to vote for me in June so that we can turn things around at the Assessor's Office!
You may contact me if you wish. See below for my email. Please assist me in getting out the vote! Post on social media, text, or tell whoever you know! It would be much appreciated.
