Who Must File Form 700
Public officials and designated employees must file Statements of Economic Interest. Public officials are specified in Government Code Section 87200. They include mayors, council members, city attorneys, city managers, planning commissioners, and persons who manage public investments. Additionally, candidates for elected positions are required to file a Candidate statement.
Designated employees and certain consultants who hold positions that involve making or participating in the making of decisions, which may foreseeably have a material effect on the holder’s financial interests also must file. Such positions are listed in the City’s conflict of interest code; people in these positions must file Statements of Economic Interests pursuant to the disclosure categories specified in that code.
