My Top 3 Priorities

  • Increase property tax savings to taxpayers, by supporting legislation to raise the homeowners’ exemption from $7,000 to $30,000 of assessed value.
  • Initiate and/or support legislation to allow property tax exemption to disabled veterans and Active Duty Servicemembers, up to $500,000 in assessed value.
  • Provide the highest level of public service and treat everyone with RESPECT, FAIRNESS, TRANSPARENCY and GOODWILL.

Questions & Answers

Questions from League of Women Voters of Los Angeles County (2)

What criteria should voters use to evaluate candidates for Assessor?  What are your strongest qualifications for office?
Answer from Sandy Sun:

In 168 years, there has never been a female Assessor.    

As an 18 year veteran of the Assessor’s Office, I’m fully trained in both Real and Personal Property Appraisal.  Appraisal is the primary job at the Assessor's Office.  With 18 YEARS ACTUAL HANDS-ON WORK EXPERIENCE in multiple sections and regions throughout the years; I bring a wealth of knowledge and skills to this position.   

I have the qualifications, desire and passion to serve the public.  

And I will continue to treat ALL PEOPLE with HONESTY, INTEGRITY, RESPECT, and GOODWILL.  


What steps would you take to reduce the possibility of favoritism or corruption when reassessing property in Los Angeles County?
Answer from Sandy Sun:

In order to stop favoritism and/or corruption it would require complete transparency and accountability, starting with top management on down to the employees.   

If elected, I would have an open door policy where employees can share their concerns freely without fear of retaliation.
