Prior to soliciting or receiving campaign contributions, a candidate must file Form 501, Candidate Intention Statement, with the City Clerk. The form is available at the City Clerk’s office or can be found online at http://www.fppc.ca.gov/content/dam/fppc/NS-Documents/TAD/Campaign%20Forms/501.pdf.

An officeholder or candidate who receives contributions totaling $2,000 within a calendar year qualifies as a recipient committee and must file a Form 410 with the Secretary of State within 10 days of qualifying.  When filing the Form 410, include a $50 payment made payable to the Secretary of State. If your committee has not yet reached the $2,000 threshold, mark the “not yet qualified” box. The $50 fee is requested at this time but is not legally required until the group qualifies as a committee. The form is available at the City Clerk’s office or can be found online at http://www.fppc.ca.gov/content/dam/fppc/NS-Documents/TAD/Campaign%20Forms/410.pdf.
