He later worked for the Assembly Republican Caucus as a communications consultant before moving to his position in the Senate.
“I’m very humbled to work for Vice Chair George Runner and the constituents of Board of Equalization, District 1,” said Grant. “This is a phenomenal opportunity to serve the public, and I look forward to working with everyone.”
Grant was born and raised in South Central Los Angeles. He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Communications Studies from UC Davis. He has a Master’s degree in marketing from the University of Phoenix.
“Micah brings energy, experience and talent that will assist us in serving taxpayers,” said Senator George Runner. “I’m pleased to have him join our staff.”
The Board of Equalization is a public agency charged with tax administration and fee collection in the state of California. The authorities of the board fall into four main areas: sales and use taxes, property taxes, special taxes, and acting as an appellate body for franchise and income tax appeals.
