WHY File Form 700?
The Political Reform Act (Government Code Sections 81000-91015) requires most state and local government officials and employees to publicly disclose their personal assets and income. They must also disqualify themselves from participating in decisions that may affect their personal financial interests. The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) is the State agency responsible for issuing the Statement of Economic Interest (Form 700), and for interpreting the law's provisions.
This is determined by State law and local regulations: Government Code Section 87200 and an agency's Conflict of Interest Code.
The following County Elected and
Appointed Officers, identified in California Government Code Section
87200, file Statements of Economic Interests (Form 700’s) directly
with the office of the Clerk of the Board of Supervisors:
- Board of Supervisors: Nora Vargas; Joel Anderson; Terra Lawson-Remer; Jim Desmond
- Chief Administrative Officer: Helen Robbins-Meyer
- County Counsel: Claudia Silva
- District Attorney: Summer Stephan
- Planning Commissioners: Ronald Ashman; Douglas Barnhart; Yolanda Calvo; Michael Edwards; Ginger Hitzke; Tommy Hough; David Pallinger
- Treasurer/Tax Collector: Dan McAllister
Each department or agency has
of Interest Code that
designates which employees must file a Form 700 ("Code
Filers"), and includes information regarding disclosure
categories. Disclosure categories set out the type of financial
interests that must be reported by each official.
For assistance completing a Form 700 and/or determining your disclosure requirements, please contact your agency's legal counsel or the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) Advice Hotline at (866) 275-3772.
