Annual Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) are filed by public officials and designated employees throughout California each spring as required by State law. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the California Fair Political Practices Commission extended the 2020 deadline to June 1. Financial disclosure filings serve two important purposes. First, they help officers and designated employees monitor their financial interests to detect and avoid potential conflicts of interest. Second, they provide transparency and promote public confidence that governmental decisions are made without any regard to any personal financial gain by those involved in making those decisions.
In general, economic interests can include investments, interests in real property, and income (including gifts and travel payments) from sources in the official’s jurisdiction. Required disclosures typically include interests that could be affected by the official’s governmental duties. The disclosure of a particular interest does not necessarily mean the filer has a conflict of interest, but it can signal a need to seek guidance and avoid creating a conflict with their official duties. As public documents, these disclosure filings also allow the public to hold officials accountable for making decisions without regard to their financial interests.
City officers and designated employees filed their 2020 Annual Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) for the period of January 1 to December 31, 2019.
