Politics

As the 2020 general election draws nearer, candidates continue to disclose their campaign contributions through the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC).

At a municipal level, each city offers an FPPC portal to provide financial information from those running for local office.

All candidates listed on the ballot were required to file a 460 or 470 form by Sept. 24. Those who have raised/spent $2,000 or more must file a 460 form. Those who did not raise or spend $2,000 or more and do not have an open committee were required to file the 470 form. Forming a committee is only a requirement for those spending over $2,000.

A 497 form must be submitted within 24 hours of any monetary contribution of $1,000 or more from a single source. The recipient of a nonmonetary contribution of $1,000 has 48 hours to file a 497.

The following displays the Tri-Valley’s council candidates’ campaign dollars. The provided campaign contribution summaries reflect the calendar year total to date. Any specific donations listed beneath a candidate’s name reflect overall funds received from that source since Jan. 31.
