I serve the voters of Contra Costa as the County Assessor, and have been elected again and again because I represent the People well. Greedy political opponents and corporate opportunists repeatedly attack me to take me down to put their own interests ahead those of the People.
The baseless attacks have all failed, and I have been exonerated by independent investigations, and the East Bay Times publicly retracted their repeated lies.

STATEMENT BY GUS KRAMER JUNE 7, 2019:I welcome the opportunity to confront my accusers with the facts discovered by not one, not two, but THREE separate independent investigations that Exonerate me of sexual harassment or hostile work place or retaliation by professionals hired by the county.When the facts are made public, the East Bay Times , the County Board of Supervisors, and their appointees on the county grand jury will be dutifully ashamed of themselves and their unwarranted and political persecution of the county assessor.
