I finally recieved my Fair Political Practice Commission (FPPC) number yesterday. I had to file a "Statement of Organization Recipient Committee" form 410, if my committee expects to raise over $1,000 during the calander year. The FPPC# is the key to start raising funds for a person running for office. Most organizations need to justify or have proof of a candidates viability and campaign structure before they can cut a check for their organization to a candidate.
Just part of the nuts and bolts of a campaign I thought I would share. Oh yeah, there are lots of rules and regulations that are to be read and forms to fill. Not the fun part of a campaign.
