Matt Strabone

Welcome!

Thank you for visiting this site and learning more about our campaign!

I'm Matt Strabone, and I'm running for County Assessor / Recorder / Clerk to ensure that all San Diegans are treated fairly. Our campaign stands for these commonsense principles:

  • Pay less property tax. Nearly 150,000 homeowners in San Diego County aren't getting all the property tax exemptions they deserve. Are you one of them? We'll fix that, and we'll work with you to find other tax savings you might have missed. Here's how.
  • Eliminating corruption. I will never use the power of the office to enrich myself, misuse taxpayer money, or play favorites. We must demand better.
  • Ending bigotry. We will always serve all the people of our county, no matter who they are or who they love, equally and with an open heart.
  • Public records belong to you, the public, and we will make it easier and less expensive for you to obtain copies of them.

This is a campaign of new ideas and new energy, and with your help we will upgrade the County Assessor / Recorder / Clerk's office and make it work for all of us.

Please vote Matt Strabone for Assessor / Recorder / County Clerk on June 5, 2018.

Thank you.

May 23, 2018: San Diego CityBeat: CityBeat's Election Endorsements. In case you missed it, we wrote a feature on ethics attorney Matt Strabone, who’s running to unseat longtime incumbent Assessor Ernest Dronenburg. The latter is banking on voter indifference to his multiple controversies (anti-gay marriage, campaign finance violations, reckless spending, etc.). Don’t be indifferent, as this race will be decided in this election. Matt Strabone is ready for the job and will be a valuable public servant in this important office that’s in charge of property taxes, property value assessments and more.

In the News: May 9, 2018 (Part Two)

May 9, 2018: Voice of San Diego: Thousands of San Diegans Are Overpaying Their Property Taxes (op-ed). I want to give 150,000 more homeowners in San Diego County a property tax break. That’s one reason why I’m running for San Diego County assessor-recorder-clerk. Right now, around 150,000 homeowners aren’t getting all of the exemptions they deserve and are actually overpaying their property taxes. These folks are missing out on the Homeowner’s Exemption, which provides a $7,000 reduction on the taxable value of your home simply by filling out a one-page form and sending it to the county assessor. I’m going to fix this problem through better outreach. One thing I’ll do is hold public workshops in every community across the county once I’m elected to make sure that you get this exemption and any other tax breaks you deserve. We deserve a government that works for us, that’s transparent and accountable, that provides excellent service and that saves San Diegans money.
