The purpose of the Lafayette Open Government Statement is to provide for the disclosure of key financial data and practices in a document and forum that is open and widely available to the public. 

The Political Reform Act prohibits a public official from using his or her official position to influence a governmental decision in which he or she knows or has reason to know he or she has a financial interest. To help identify potential conflicts of interest, the law requires officials to file forms called Statements of Economic Interests (SEIs), also known as Form 700. Form 700’s, Statements of Economic Interests, for Lafayette’s elected and appointed officials identified in Section 87200 are available below or may be viewed at city offices, 3675 Mt. Diablo Blvd., Suite 210 or on the FPPC website.
