Tustin Area Republican Women Federated will have Orange County Assessor Claude Parrish as the speaker at our February 25, 2022 luncheon. Claude Parrish was sworn in on January 5, 2015, as the elected Assessor of Orange County, where he has committed to serve the public by valuing assessable property with fairness and impartiality.
Claude Parrish is a past Los Angeles County Insurance Commissioner. Prior to his work in Orange County, he was elected to the State Board of Equalization, Third District in 1998, where he served as both its Vice Chairman and Chairman as well as a member of the Franchise Tax Board, where he instituted a taxpayer-friendly approach to serve the eight million residents of his district from 1999 to 2007. At the Board of Equalization, he also chaired the Customer Services Committee and implemented a new 800-telephone line able to answer more complex tax problems for tax professionals. Additionally, at the Board of Equalization, he chaired the powerful Property Tax Committee which is responsible for creating all Property Tax Regulations in California, which Assessors must follow.
We look forward to hearing from Mr. Parrish this Friday. This biography was taken from the website https://ocassessor.gov/biography-claude-parrish.
