San Francisco law requires many campaign consultants in the City to register and file quarterly reports disclosing their consulting activity.
Campaign Consultant Disclosure Process
The City’s Campaign Consultant Ordinance is found at Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code section 1.500 et seq.
The Ethics Commission has also promulgated regulations implementing the Campaign Consultant Ordinance.
Note also that the Lobbyist Ordinance imposes limitations on lobbying by campaign consultants and their employees.
The Ethics Commission has produced a number of Campaign Consultant Ordinance resources:
- Campaign Consultant Manual
- Answers to Questions Raised at May 15, 1998 Campaign Consultant Workshop
- Policy and Procedures for Reduction of Waiver of Fines
