Statement of Economic Interests

DocumentForm 700

State law (the Political Reform Act of 1974) requires candidates for federal, state and county offices to disclose their interests in real property and income within the past 12 months in a Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) to be filed with the Declaration of Candidacy.

EXCEPTION: This statement is not required of a candidate who has filed a statement for the same jurisdiction as an officeholder within sixty (60) days prior to assuming office or filing the Declaration of Candidacy.

Candidates for federal offices file under federal rather than state disclosure laws. For information, candidates for U.S. Representatives should write to: Office of the Clerk of the House of Representatives, 1036 Longworth House Office Building, Washington D.C.,(202) 225-1300.

Under state law, persons filing economic interest’s statements as candidates are required to disclose investments and interests in real property and income within the past 12 months.

Statements of Economic Interests are public record. They may be inspected by anyone and copies may be purchased from the filing officer for 10 cents per page.
