In California, members of the Planning Commission are required to complete a Statement of Economic Interests (Fair Political Practices Commission Form 700), to disclose financial interests that could lead to a conflict-of-interest. In San Leandro, the Board of Zoning Adjustments (BZA) is also required to complete Form 700. Members are required to complete the disclosures annually and within 30 days of assuming office.
These disclosures are public documents and any member of the public can inspect and obtain copies ($0.10 each) of these disclosures. San Leandro Bytes obtains copies from the San Leandro City Clerk, scans them, and publishes them here to increase local government transparency and to save you from a trip to City Hall.
Below are the disclosures for 2007 for current members of the San Leandro Planning Commission and San Leandro Board of Zoning Adjustments:
