FEC Reporting Made Easy (or at least easier), Part I

Benjamin A. Katz

Filing campaign statements with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) or any government agency can be a nerve racking and mentally exhausting experience. Having to itemize nearly every transaction, complete complicated forms and follow obscure rules make reporting a challenging job.

The frequency of reports, rapid turnaround required during election season and requirement for exact reporting makes campaign reporting scary for even the most seasoned professional accountant.

Jim Ross

Paul M. Fallon

Not any longer! The state Fair Political Practices Commission is currently updating its Manuals A-F, and in the process has created separate manuals for statewide candidate committees and local candidate committees. In San Diego County, where we are based, both the City of San Diego and

Organizing Your Political Campaign

Benjamin A. Katz

The size and nature of campaign staff varies greatly depending on the office sought and the resources available. A local campaign may be run completely by part-time volunteers while a national campaign could have a staff of hundreds.  

Despite these differences and regardless of size, all campaigns must fill the same key positions While a smaller campaign may depend on a few people doing multiple jobs, it is just as important that all major roles of the campaign are occupied.

For any campaign, the three key jobs that must be fulfilled are
