taxes, served 97 public agencies through the Treasury division, and
managed a $3.2 billion County investment pool
“This year, by comparison, we expect to collect $6.5 billion in taxes from nearly a million property owners,” said Mr. McAllister. “We currently assist 210 public agencies in San Diego County, and last fiscal year, we reached a record high of $11.6 billion in our AAA-rated investment pool, making it the second largest pool in the state for the third year in a row”
For these and other efforts, Mr. McAllister’s office has received 35 different national awards and accolades from organizations such as the National Association of Counties and the publication Pensions & Investments.
“I want to express my sincere gratitude to the tremendous team in the Treasurer-Tax Collector’s Office,” said Mr. McAllister. “Thank you for your innovative thinking, your excellent customer service, and your tireless work for the taxpayers of San Diego County.”
Mr. McAllister was sworn in by Michael Brunker, the executive director of the Jackie Robinson YMCA whom Mr. McAllister called a tenacious team leader who has been a major catalyst for change in that organization.
“Jackie Robinson once said, ‘A life is not important except in the impact it has to other lives.’ Dan McAllister is an impact player in the biggest game of all – the game of life in the many way he serves others before self through his elected position and volunteerism to so many community causes,” said Mr. Brunker. “Every day it is clear to see this trusted champion spends his heaven doing good on earth.”
