San Francisco Assessor-Recorder

As Assessor-Recorder of San Francisco, Phil Ting is a solutions-focused, innovative reformer whose efforts have enabled him to generate over $135 million in new revenue for San Francisco. Ting was appointed and later elected in 2005, becoming the city's highest-ranking Chinese-American official.

An avid champion for innovative and good government policies, Ting launched GoSolarSF (San Francisco's first municipal solar energy incentive program); spearheaded efforts to help homeowners and tenants facing foreclosure; and introduced groundbreaking Real Estate Watchdog legislation aimed at capturing unreported changes of ownership.
