Press Release – June 9, 2009 – SUMMARY OF ACTIONS TAKEN AT JUNE 8, 2009 MEETING



John St. Croix
(415) 252-3100

For release:
June 9, 2009


At its meeting on June 8, 2009, the San Francisco Ethics Commission took the following actions:

  • Adopted the following staff proposals to amend the Lobbyist Ordinance (“the Ordinance”), C&GC Code section 2.100 et seq.:
  1. Approved, by a vote of 3-0, an amendment to clarify that the Executive Director may waive or reduce a late filing fee; that if such reduction or waiver equals or exceeds $500, the Executive Director must notify the Commission; and that if two or more Commission members wish to calendar the reduction or waiver for discussion at the next Commission meeting, they must notify the Executive Director no fewer than five days before the date of the meeting; and
  2. Approved, by a vote of 3-0, an amendment to delete current section 2.117(c) because other amendments to the Ordinance approved by the Commission already require the information currently required under section 2.117(c).

Note:  The amendments will not become effective until the Board of Supervisors has considered and enacted them, subject to the Mayor's veto authority. 

The Commission’s next meeting will be held on Monday, July 13, 2009, at 5:30 p.m. in Room 408 City Hall. 


The Ethics Commission, established in November 1993, serves the public, City employees and officials and candidates for public office through education and enforcement of ethics laws.  Its duties include:  filing and auditing of campaign finance disclosure statements, lobbyist and campaign consultant registration and regulation, administration of the public financing program, whistleblower program, conflict of interest reporting, investigations and enforcement, education and training, advice giving and statistical reporting.
