SF ETHICS COMMISSION ANNOUNCES THAT THE INDIVIDUAL EXPENDITURE CEILING HAS BEEN RAISED FOR BOARD OF SUPERVISORS CANDIDATES IN DISTRICT 2

The San Francisco Ethics Commission announced today that it raised the Individual Expenditure Ceiling of two publicly financed candidates in District 2, Kat Anderson and Abraham Simmons, to $153,000.    The Individual Expenditure Ceiling for these two candidates was raised because the Total Supportive Funds of another candidate in the district totaled $160,915.  

Yesterday, Mark Farrell, a candidate for the Board of Supervisors in District 2, filed a form indicating that he has raised $160,915.  Accordingly, by law, the Ethics Commission was required to raise the Individual Expenditure Ceiling of publicly financed candidates in District 2. 

A table reflecting the Individual Expenditure Ceilings of all publicly financed candidates is updated as ceilings are adjusted and is posted on the Ethics Commission website at (http://www.sfethics.org/ethics/2010/05/campaign-finance-expenditure-ceilings-november-2-2010-election.html).

A candidate running for the Board of Supervisors who seeks public funding must abide by his or her Individual Expenditure Ceiling, which begins at $143,000, and may be raised in increments of $10,000 based on the sum of opposition spending against the participating candidate and the total supportive funds of the candidate's opponents.  A candidate is required to file Form SFEC-152(a)-2 within 24 hours of receiving contributions or making expenditures that equal or exceed $100,000 and for every $10,000 thereafter.  Any person making independent expenditures, electioneering communications, or member communications that clearly identify a candidate for the Board of Supervisors is required to file Form SFEC-152(a)-3 within 24 hours of each time the person spends $5,000 or more per candidate.

A candidate running for the Board of Supervisors who seeks public funding must abide by his or her Individual Expenditure Ceiling, which begins at $143,000, and may be raised in increments of $10,000 based on the sum of opposition spending against the participating candidate and the total supportive funds of the candidate’s opponents.  A candidate is required to file Form SFEC-152(a)-2 within 24 hours of receiving contributions or making expenditures that equal or exceed $100,000 and for every $10,000 thereafter.  Any person making independent expenditures, electioneering communications, or member communications that clearly identify a candidate for the Board of Supervisors is required to file the Third Party Disclosure form within 24 hours of each time the person spends $5,000 or more per candidate.
