Statements of Economic Interests – Form 700 Filings

To help identify potential conflicts of interest, the law requires officials to file Statement of Economic Interests forms. These forms include information about the sources of an official's income, investments, business positions, real property holdings and gifts.

Copies of the Statements of Economic Interests Forms for most state and local officials are filed with their local agency. In most instances, the agency is required to forward the originals for specified high-level officials to the FPPC (Gov. Code 87200). Forms filed by legislative staff and retired judges serving on assignment file directly with the FPPC.

To view Statement of Economic Interests Forms filed with the local agency please visit a County of Santa Barbara Election office closest to you. To view Statement of Economic Interests Form 700's filed with the FPPC please visit their website.
