Jerome E. Horton, Chairman of the Board of Equalization (BOE), was sworn into office to serve his third term as a California Constitutional Officer representing 8.5 million Californians on the Board of Equalization.  As Chairman of the Board, Horton also serves as a member of the Franchise Tax Board and is 10th in line to replace the Governor in his absence from office.  He was first appointed to the Board by Governor Schwarzenegger and confirmed by the State Assembly and Senate in 2009 an overwhelmingly re-elected to the Board, with upwards of one million votes in November, 2014. 

Inglewood City Clerk Yvonne Horton and Chairman  Horton are one of a few couples who serve simultaneously as elected public servants and to make it official, City Clerk Horton administered the oath of office to her husband, during a private luncheon with BOE Executive Officers and team members of the Board of Equalization, and their granddaughter serving as witnesses.  


 “Our greatest assets are the people we serve and if we protect them and position them to do their best, our communities are stronger, wiser, and more prosperous,” said Horton.  “During my third term, my goal is to continue to help California Taxpayers be successful.”  

Horton currently represents the BOE 4th District, which will become the 3rd District on January 1, 2015, due to the California Citizens Redistricting Commission of 2011. In his new district, he will represent over 11 million residents in Los Angeles and Ventura Counties and a portion of San Bernardino County.
