Ensen Mason was sworn in on Monday as San Bernardino County’s new auditor, controller, treasurer and tax collector — known by the acronym ATC.
Mason defeated incumbent Oscar Valdez in the June primary election with more than 51 percent of the vote.
In his remarks following his swearing in at the at the San Bernardino DoubleTree Hotel, Mason promised to increase openness and transparency in the operation of his office.
“San Bernardino County residents deserve prompt, efficient, and friendly service along with the benefit of the doubt in transacting any business with our office,” said Mason. “They also deserve an ATC fully committed to ending fraud, waste, and abuse of their hard-earned tax dollars.”
Mason was sworn in by his father Thomas Mason. Supervisor Curt Hagman served as master of ceremonies at the event.
“Ensen Mason has been a highly successful CPA and financial advisor in San Bernardino County for over 30 years,” Hagman said. “He will make an excellent ATC.”
Mason will also serve on the board of directors of San Bernardino Employees’ Retirement Association, which is responsible for the management of more than $6 billion in employee pension funds.
