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.

March 7, 2018: San Diego CityBeat (cover story): Matt Strabone Really Cares. “Now I know what you’re all thinking, and it’s always the first question I get,” Strabone begins telling the crowd before pausing. “What does the San Diego County Assessor-Recorder-Clerk actually do?”  “It’s one thing to list out that the office has three primary roles, but people still need you to connect the dots,” Strabone says. “When I go up to folks and tell them that there are 150,000 homeowners in San Diego County who are not getting the property tax exemption that they should be getting and that those people are paying extra money on property tax every year, that gets their attention.”  “Anything I can do to improve customer service and outreach, I will do it,” he tells the people gathered in the condo complex. “I know that this isn’t the most high-profile office in the world, but it does touch the lives of literally every person in the county and that’s why it’s so important to me.”

February 22, 2018: San Diego Free Press: Keeping the Stupid in Politics, San Diego Style. Incumbent Assessor/Recorder/County Clerk Ernest Dronenburg has been hitting the road and living the high life on the taxpayer dime. He’s spent $90,000 on 161 mostly in-state trips since 2012... The incumbent Dronenberg favors high-end hotels and often switches lodging locations during a trip, apparently as part of a strategy to run-up rewards points with hotel chains and airlines. Needless to say, Dronenberg’s opponent in the winner-take-all June primary, Matt Strabone, released a statement on the exposé, saying in part: “Ernie Dronenburg is a career politician who’s long since lost touch with voters, and this is just another example. San Diego deserves a County Assessor who puts the people of San Diego County first and focuses on the duties of the office, not one who spends his workdays schmoozing in wine country and 4-star ski resorts on the taxpayers’ dime. If elected, I’ll spend that time here in San Diego County showing homeowners how to save their tax money instead of using it to pad a Hyatt rewards points account.”
