San Francisco Campaign and Governmental Conduct Code (“S.F. C&GC Code”) sections 1.143(c), 1.152(a)(3), 1.161(b), 1.161.5, and 1.160.5 require persons who make any independent expenditure, electioneering communication, or member communication that clearly identifies a candidate for City elective office or who authorizes, administers or pays for a persuasion poll to file disclosure statements with the Ethics Commission.
Because there is not a publicly funded candidate in the November 5, 2013 election and the Voluntary Expenditure Ceiling is not in place for any of the races involved in the November 5, 2013 election, Part 4 of the Third Party Disclosure form is not applicable. For this reason, FPPC Form 496 is the best source of independent spending data regarding candidates in the November 5, 2013 election.
Late independent expenditures (filed on Form 496) regarding candidates in the November 5, 2013 election
Spending in support of a candidate is labeled with a green color. Spending in opposition of a candidate is labeled with a red color.
