April 16, 2018: San Diego Union-Tribune: County assessor invested in companies that own and manage properties under his jurisdiction. Many assessors in California have policies on how to value an official’s personal property such as a house — for instance, handing the job off to counterparts in other counties to avoid a conflict of interest.
