Alameda County Democratic Party Endorses Phong for Assessor

The Alameda County Democratic Party on April 5 announced its endorsement of Phong La for Alameda County Assessor.

To receive the endorsement of the Alameda County Democratic Party, candidates must receive 60% of the votes cast, and ballot measures must receive a majority of votes cast.

The Alameda County Democratic Party coordinates the Party’s activities throughout the county, making endorsements, organizing events and directing resources to support local, state and national candidates. The Alameda County Democratic Central Committee is charged under state law with overseeing the Party’s local activities and campaigns, under the general direction of the California Democratic Party.

The Central Committee consists of members elected from each of the county’s State Assembly Districts, as well as the Democratic nominees for Congress, State Senate, Assembly, and State Constitutional office.

East Bay Times Editorial: ‘Phong La best of 4 in Alameda County assessor’s race’

The East Bay Times endorses Phong La for Alameda County Assessor!

Of all the candidates, the editorial states: “real estate and tax attorney Phong La stands out. He has seen the office from the other side, having helped clients challenge their property assessments. He wants to improve the customer experience, with greater emphasis on electronic access and opening of satellite offices in south and east county. All good suggestions. But most important is his legal experience, which should ground him well for a job that often centers around application of complex state property tax laws.”

“La is the best pick in this field. Voters should elect him to replace [Ron] Thomsen.”
