Ethics Commission announces names of Board of Education and Community College Board candidates who agreed to abide by the voluntary spending limit

The Ethics Commission today announced the names of candidates for the Board of Education or Community College Board who have agreed to abide by the $98,000 voluntary spending limit.  Local law requires candidates who are running for the Board of Education or the Community College Board in the November 4, 2008 election to submit forms to the Ethics Commission by August 13, 2008 to indicate whether they accept or not accept the voluntary expenditure ceiling.  The chart below lists the names of candidates who qualified for the ballot and a mark to indicate whether the candidate has accepted or not accepted the spending limit.  On August 11, 2008, the Ethics Commission announced the names of candidates for the Board of Supervisors who agreed to abide by the voluntary spending limit. 

S.F. Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code Section 1.128 requires that the Voter Information Pamphlet include a notice indicating whether a candidate has accepted the voluntary expenditure ceiling.  For candidates who have accepted the ceiling, the notice will state:  “The above candidate has accepted the City’s voluntary spending limit.”  For candidates who have not accepted the ceiling, the notice will state:  “The above candidate has NOT accepted the City’s voluntary spending limit.”  If a candidate was precluded from accepting or rejecting the limits because the expenditure ceiling for a particular race was lifted before the candidate filed the statement, the notice for that candidate will state:  “The voluntary spending limit was lifted before this candidate decided whether to accept or not accept the limit.”
