My Top 3 Priorities

  • Cut wasteful spending! Currently resources are being wasted whereas if they were to be given to support the staff, in return the staff would be able to provide a better public service.
  • Improve on office procedures that would make public services much more efficient.
  • To make sure that the Assessor Office is transparent in all of its operations so that it can remain fair to everyone in Los Angeles County.

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 Krish Indra Kumar:

The Assessor office should be run by someone that has worked in the office as an appraiser for many years.  This will allow the Assessor to really understand how to do this job and how to run the office effectively.

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

Part of my campaign is not to take donations, therefore if elected there would not be any suspicion of favoritism.  Also I would want to make the office as transparent as possible.  This includes openly making public reductions made in assessments and the reasons why they were done.  It is public information anyways but I want to make it much easier displayed.

Political Beliefs

Political Philosophy

I would like to welcome everyone, from my longtime supporters to our new support team. The ability of this campaign to make real change starts with you. From all the efforts made in 2010 and 2014 to your continuing commitment to win the 2018 Assessor's race, I sincerely thank you and plan to work hard in order to achieve our shared goals. "Doing the job right!" is our simple, yet powerful motto, which embraces everyone's desire for their elected officials to do their jobs properly, and show progress every year. Advancing the efficiency and effectiveness of the Assessor's Office is my number one priority by reducing financial waste from improper valuations and re-thinking poorly functioning services. With my specific changes to procedures and policies, we can vastly reduce time wasted and money spent in order to put money back into Los Angeles County that directly benefits you. Millions of dollars are being lost each year due to improper assessments and executive referrals along with an understaffed and poorly equipped Assessor's Office. A vote for Krish Kumar is a vote for an efficient, effective and ethical government
