Campaign Contribution Disclosure Report

    Please review all the rules for Campaign Contributions in the Election Manual including IX. Other Campaign Rules and XI. Challenges to the Election. Below are two key rules to keep in mind when completing the Campaign Contribution Disclosure Report (CCDR).

    IX. G. Candidates (including prospective candidates) shall not seek or receive financial support or any other form of support (including, without limitation, endorsements, services, or materials) for his or her candidacy from any labor organization or employer, regardless of the relationship between that labor organization or employer to UTLA. Candidates shall not seek or receive financial support, or any other direct or indirect support of any kind (except an individual’s own volunteered personal time) from anyone who is not a member of UTLA, a friend or family member of the candidate. Violation of this rule shall render a candidate ineligible to run for or hold office for a period of one year. Candidates must report any and all financial or material support pursuant to Section H of these rules (“Campaign Contribution Disclosure Reports”).

    IX. H. 5. Originals of the Campaign Contribution Distribution Reports shall be retained for four years after the end of the election and shall be made available to any UTLA member for review at UTLA’s offices, upon request. The Campaign Contribution Disclosure Reports of candidates and committees shall be published in summary form on the UTLA Elections website.

    Who should file this report

    • This statement covers all contributions and expenses incurred for the 2022-2023 UTLA General Election campaign including carryover funds from the previous UTLA Election, up to the vote count day. A separate report must be submitted for any run-off or re-run elections.
    • Even if a candidate is reporting as a Political Committee, the individual candidate must submit a Disclosure Report even if it shows 0 contributions and 0 expenses.
    • If a candidate contributed money to their Political Committee but raised that money through private fund raising, those contributions must be reported on their individual Disclosure Report.
