McAllister sworn in as treasurer-tax collector

SAN DIEGO – Dan McAllister took the oath of office Monday, Jan. 9, as he began his term as San Diego County's treasurer-tax collector.

During his inauguration address, McAllister reflected on the accomplishments of his office since he was first elected in 2002. At that time, his office collected $2.6 billion in secured property 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 $8.1 billion in taxes from over a million property owners," McAllister said. "We assist over 200 public agencies in San Diego County, and last fiscal year, we reached a record high of $15.9 billion in our AAA-rated investment pool. I'm incredibly proud of what we have been able to accomplish in the treasurer-tax collector's office.

"I want to express my sincere gratitude to the hardworking team in the treasurer-tax collector's office. Thank you for focusing on solutions that put our taxpayers at the forefront of what you do. Your tireless work on their behalf is inspiring," McAllister said.

McAllister was sworn in by centenarian Deborah Szekely, American activist, philanthropist and writer. Named the "Godmother of Wellness" by the Huffington Post, Szekely led McAllister through the swearing in ceremony. McAllister's son, Patrick McAllister, held the family Bible on which his father took the oath of office.
