Kickoff Event a Huge Success!


A strong crowd of supporters and elected officials past and present joined Matt Strabone to officially launch his campaign for San Diego Assessor, Recorder, and County Clerk on a beautiful afternoon at the Pacific Beach Woman's Club.

"I believe that we elect our leaders with the expectation that they will serve the common good. That means looking after all of us. But when the very people who are supposed to look after us do just the opposite, and serve only themselves, we have to fight back. And we do that by kicking them out of office," Strabone said.

"I have stubborn hope, my friends, that together, we will put an end to the dishonesty and prejudice and replace them instead with transparency and accountability. Together, we will bring new ideas and new energy to make certain that the County Clerk works for all San Diegans, ensuring that everyone pays their fair share and protecting every San Diegan from bigotry wherever it may come from."

More images from the event can be found on the campaign's Facebook page.

Election Day is June 5, 2018.

It pays to have friends in high places, especially when it comes time to appeal property tax assessments in San Diego County, according to documents released via the California Public Records Act and provided to the San Diego Free Press. These documents, along with a careful analysis of campaign finance records and personal financial disclosures, suggest favoritism has been a factor in reducing the tax burdens of those with connections to County Assessor Ernest Dronenburg. A major local corporation, along with a longtime campaign contributor’s family, were among the beneficiaries, thanks to a seeming lack of interest in challenging appeals by the agency responsible for such matters. Because there was no push-back by the County, the assessment appeals process was effectively manipulated, paving the way for significant reductions in property values for Qualcomm, the largest property taxpayer in San Diego County.

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.
