Supplemental Filings Required by Candidates and Persons Who Make Expenditures Relating to Candidates

The certification of a candidate as eligible to receive public funds triggers reporting requirements under section 1.152(b) of the Campaign Finance Reform Ordinance (S.F. Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code § 1.100 et seq.).  Under section 1.152(b)(2), each candidate for Mayor must file Form SFEC-152(b)-2 with the Ethics Commission within 24 hours of receiving contributions, or making expenditures that equal or exceed $1,000,000.  Thereafter, the candidate must file an additional supplemental statement within 24 hours of every time the candidate receives additional contributions, or makes additional expenditures that in the aggregate equal or exceed $50,000.

Under section 1.152(b)(3), any person (individual, partnership, corporation, association, firm, committee, club, or other organization or group of persons, however organized) who makes independent expenditures, electioneering communications or member communications that clearly identify any candidate for Mayor, and the amount of those expenditures in the aggregate equals or exceeds $5,000 per candidate must, within 24 hours of reaching the spending threshold, file the Third Party Disclosure Form and a legible copy of the communication with the Ethics Commission.  Thereafter, any such person must file a supplemental statement and a legible copy of the communication each time that the person makes or incurs an additional expense of $5,000 or more. The costs of a communication that supports or opposes more than one candidate or measure must be apportioned among each candidate and measure in the communication.
