Notice of Proposed Regulations Concerning Public Financing Program

At its next regular meeting on Friday, November 16, 2018, the San Francisco Ethics Commission will consider and possibly act on a set of proposed regulations regarding the City’s public campaign financing program.

Candidates running for Mayor or Supervisor can become eligible for limited public financing of their campaigns by complying with program eligibility requirements. To be eligible, candidates must raise a specified minimum amount of contributions from City residents of between $10 and $100. Ethics Commission Staff have proposed regulations to clarify several aspects of the public financing program, including eligibility requirements.

This 10-day notice is provided under Charter Sec. 4.104 to encourage public comment on the proposals in advance of the Commission’s next meeting.

The Commission invites all input on the proposed regulations. Written comments can be sent via email to, or delivered to San Francisco Ethics Commission, 25 Van Ness Avenue, Suite 220, San Francisco, CA 94102. Written public comment received by 5:00 p.m. on Thursday, November 8, 2018, will be included in the Commission’s packet of meeting materials for its November 16th meeting. Opportunity for public comment will also be provided during the Commission’s meeting.
