Effective January 1, 2021, AB 2151 requires local government agencies to post campaign statements and reports on their agency's website, within 72-hours of each applicable filing deadline, if they are filed in paper format. If the final day of the 72-hour period is a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday, the period is extended to the next day that is not a Saturday, Sunday, or holiday. The reports and statements must remain on the agency's website for at least 4 years. 

The City of Sebastopol will post the campaign statements and reports by year, beginning with 2021.

State Campaign Contribution Limits Effective January 1, 2021

Effective January 1, 2021, the State's contribution limit for 2021-2022 is $4,900 per contribution per election. Since the City of Sebastopol did not implement it own contribution limits, the City is subject to the State's current limits and their enforcement. Therefore, a person cannot contribute, and a candidate for elective City office may not accept, a contribution totaling more than the limit set forth for candidates for statewide elective office (State Senate and Assembly) as per Government Code Section 85301(d) (as amended). The limit is $4,900 for 2021-2022 per election and will be adjusted by the FPPC every two years.
