Motion on Assessor
Supervisor Michael D. Antonovich introduced a motion directing County Counsel to prepare an advisory vote for the November election asking if the Los Angeles County Assessor should be an appointed or an elected position. He also directed County Counsel to report on what action is required for the board of supervisors to appoint an interim assessor if the office is vacated.
On May 21, a former Los Angeles County property appraiser was arrested in Oregon and charged with falsifying department documents and unlawfully lowering property values of multi-million dollar homes and businesses in exchange for campaign contributions for the assessor. He is currently being held on $1.5 million bail.
The assessor and a tax lobbyist’s home and office were searched in April pursuant to a warrant obtained by the District Attorney for suspected fraud.
