My office recently stepped in to help a taxpayer who was hit with the fire fee even though she moved out months before the bill came due. I spoke with Michael Turko, host of "The Turko Files" on San Diego's KUSI news station about our efforts to help this taxpayer with her fire fee issue.


KUSI originally reported about the same feepayer who has  been fighting the fee for years:

Special thanks to Santee Councilmember Ronn Hall for assisting with this issue and to BOE Vice Chair George Runner for his fire fee advocacy efforts. 

If you have a fire fee issue, please contact my office at (949) 724-2578 or email me at
