Flags in Palo Cedro, CA - 05/31/10 12:05 PM
Palo Cedro Flags....I am proud to be part of the Palo Cedro Post of the American Legion for their flags on display along Deschutes Road. All credit goes to Bob Wagner and the committee for a great job on this. Very impressive in our rural community. Thanks to all of the volunteers that made this happen, and check it out in beautiful Palo Cedro, as you cannot miss the flags. (2 comments)
Ways to Succeed by Cost Cutting Innovative Ideas in Shasta County - 05/29/10 11:29 PM
Early in my campaign, I made it known both verbally and in writing that one of the characteristics of my campaign platform was to, in an effort to be a true advocate for the taxpayer, look for ways that the county could save money in cost cutting ideas. From fleet management to inter office cooperation, I would look at the Assessor Recorder office in terms of efficiency and cost effectiveness..from the taxpayer and business owner point of view. I was ridiculed, being told that was not in the job description of the Assessor Recorder. Obviously, I disagreed. Today, the Sheriff made public (0 comments)
Housing in Redding, CA - 05/29/10 12:49 AM
About a month ago, as part of my campaign for Shasta County Assessor Recorder, I met for my Editorial Interview with the Record Searchlight paper. As part of my prepared notes for the interview, I made it very clear that we are still in a downturn, and that County offices are going to find that the property tax revenue to the County was going to continue to go down in the next few years. Those of us in the real estate business are well aware of the fact that bank owned properties are increasing, causing home values to fall...which translates to (0 comments)
Flags on Signs in Redding,CA - 05/28/10 12:55 AM
Last Tuesday our campaign team started putting small American flags on each of our larger signs in the Redding area as our tribute to Memorial Day....being a little creative to call attention to the fact that many have died for our country over the years to keep us a free nation. Today, my opponent for the position of Shasta County Assessor Recorder in the June 8th election, "followed the leader" and started putting out their flags on their signs....and we appreciate their efforts to also call attention to this great national holiday. Hopefully, all that see the flags will remember those that (5 comments)

Please join us this Sunday, May 23rd, at the Anselmo Vineyards in Inwood near Shingletown, CA in the foothills of Lassen National Park.

Senior Exemptions and California Property Taxes - 05/14/10 01:30 AM
Earlier tonight, at a Candidates Night, I was asked the question "what are you telling the taxpayers about Senior exemptions". My answer was "call the Assessors Office.... that the office can only do what is allowed by law, but some of the exemptions might apply to you". And, the following is the law in California: What are Propositions 58 and 193? Proposition 58 provides for an exclusion from reassessment real property transfers between parents and children. Proposition 193 expands this tax relief to include certain transfers from grandparents to their grandchildren (transfers from grandchildren to grandparents are not eligible). Specific requirements must be (1 comments)
Letter to the Editor on Numbers and Philosophy - Ron Largent - 05/13/10 01:05 AM
Letter to the Editor May 10, 2010 In your editorial of April 4, 2010, you challenged me to "prove" the statistical facts pertaining to property assessments in Shasta County since the incumbent Assessor-Recorder took office in January of 2007. The factual information and official data from the Assessor-Recorder's Office and from the California State Board of Equalization indicates the following: •· January 1, 2009: Of the 96,000 properties in Shasta County, 16,400 were re-assessed to a lower value because of the real estate value down turn under the provisions of Proposition 8, representing only 17% of all properties on the secured (0 comments)
