Campaign Consultants - Research and Filings
Please Note: The Ethics Commission will no longer issue quarterly report summaries of campaign consultant activity. All activity will be provided via the Campaign Consultant Activity Dashboard (see below) and made available for download through the City's data.sfgov.org open data system.
Campaign consultant forms are filed on paper and recorded in a database viewable on the Ethics Commission web site. The campaign consultant filings are integrated with the Ethics Commission's campaign finance database. To search for campaign consultant filings, use the "Search by Name" option to search for the name of the filer. Alternatively, you can monitor recent campaign consultant filings by using the "Search Filings by Date" option.
Forms are scanned after they are processed and attached to the records in the database. Filings that have been scanned have a "View" link next to the record in the database. Scanned forms are in PDF format. Filings that have not yet been scanned are marked as "Visit Office" and can be viewed in the Ethics Commission's office during regular business hours from 8:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.
The Ethics Commission maintains a dashboard that summarizes campaign consultant activity in San Francisco. The data used to build the charts and graphs on the dashboard is available for download from the San Francisco Data web site (data.sfgov.org). The data is updated quarterly after each campaign consultant reporting deadline and includes data from 2009 to the present.
Campaign consultant activity from 1998-2012 was summarized in quarterly reports available below. Activity after 2012 is summarized on the dashboard web site above.
