California Fair Political Practices Commission
The Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) is a five-member independent, non-partisan commission that has primary responsibility for the impartial and effective administration of the Political Reform Act. The Act regulates campaign financing, conflicts of interest, lobbying, and governmental ethics. The Commission’s objectives are to ensure that public officials act in a fair and unbiased manner in the governmental decision-making process, to promote transparency in government, and to foster public trust in the political system.
The FPPC requires certain campaign statements be filed by each candidate. The forms filed by each candidate to date are available for review below and files are also available for review in the City Clerk’s Office.
