The Political Reform Act of 1974 requires persons holding specified public offices to file disclosures of investments, real property interests, and income within specified periods of assuming office, leaving office, and annually while holding office.

Access and E-file a 700 Form
Public officials identified under Government Code Section 87200 file their Statement of Economic Interests (Form 700) with the City Clerk, the filing officer. A copy is retained in the City Clerk’s Office, and the original is forwarded to the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC). Additionally, candidates for Covina elected positions must file a Statement of Economic Interests with the City Clerk’s Office no later than the final filing date of the nomination period. Employees designated in the Covina Conflict of Interest Code and specific consultants who hold positions that involve making or participating in decisions that may foreseeably have a material effect on the holder’s financial interest must also file.
