November 15, 2017: San Diego Free PressCounty Elections Matter: Matt Strabone’s Campaign for Assessor/Recorder/Clerk.

Meet Matt Strabone, the ‘viable non-appointed candidate’ and man with a plan to bring good government practices to the low profile county office that touches virtually every San Diegan.

Candidate Strabone made local political radar with a record (for the office involved) $50,000 in contributions reported in June. Since then he’s racked up a hefty list of endorsements.

In a recent interview, Strabone stressed his vision for good government, saying elected officials had an obligation to explain their services to any group willing to provide a forum, including non-profits, church, and area planning groups.

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.

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.
