A Few Form 700’s– Conflicts of Interest and Your City Government

The Political Reform Act of 1974 (Gov. Code sections 81000-91014) requires many state and local public officials and employees to disclose certain personal fi­nancial holdings.  The Act, which frequently has been amended, began as a ballot initia­tive approved by over 70 percent of Califor­nia voters in the wake of the Watergate po­litical scandals.

One of the Act’s stated purposes de­clares: Assets and income of public offi­cials which may be materially af­fected by their official actions should be disclosed and in appro­priate circumstances the officials should be disqualified from acting in order that conflicts of interest may be avoided.  (Cal. Gov’t. Code sec­tion 81002(c).) In its findings and declarations, the Act adds: Public officials, whether elected or appointed, should perform their duties in an impartial manner, free from bias caused by their own fi­nancial interests or the financial interests of persons who have supported them. (Cal. Gov’t. Code section 81001(b).) 

The Act and its practical implementa­tion have a broad reach across California government. Many tens of thousands of public workers, ranging from the governor to local department heads to board and commission members, are required to file public, personal financial disclosure re­ports known as “statements of economic interests”. – Excerpted From “Your Duty To File”, Fair Political Practices Commission.
