Every year elected officials are required to submit annual statements of economic interests, commonly known as Form 700s. While most local cities have submitted their elected officials forms to the Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) 2UrbanGirls notice the city of Inglewood hasn’t submitted and Compton Mayor Aja Brown hasn’t submitted since 2016, despite her council colleagues being current through 2017. 2018 forms are due by April 2, 2019.
Assemblymember Autumn Burke files her 700s timely. She reports her consulting company, Mandeville Group LLC, earns income between $2k-$10k per year.
2UrbanGirls wonders if her consulting fees resulted in her sponsoring an assembly bill allowing CA schools with state operating loans (Inglewood Unified School District) to sell or lease their real estate holdings to reduce their debt?
Assemblymember Steve Bradford was the recipient of $132 worth of clothes from the Re-Elect Sen. Atkins 2020 campaign committee. The California Correctional Peace Officers Association gifted him two tickets to see comedian Kevin Heart at Golden1 Center at his Sacramento, CA, tour stop worth a reported value of $25.50.
Assemblymember Mike Gipson accepted a $12k eight day vacation to the Netherlands from the California Foundation on the Environment and the Economy despite the conference not being listed on the organizations official website. The organization then sent Gipson on a three day (11/18-11/21) jaunt, to Chile/Mexico for another $12k and again the conference where he was listed as a panel member is not listed on the organizations website. It’s also interesting how both trips cost the same amounts.
Assemblymember Sydney Kamlager-Dove is a wealthy woman. She lists her husband Austin Dove as earning between $100k- $1,000,000 for his law firm. She also reports over $100k in income from Hillspire, Inc.
She owns two homes, one worth upwards of $1 million in Los Angeles, where she collects rent ranging from $10,001-$100,000 . The home on Sweetzer is worth over $1,000,000 where she collects rent between $10,001-$100,000 from Airbnb renters.
Assemblymember Chris Holden lists his spouses income of upwards of $100,000 from her role as a realtor with Keller Williams and another $100,000 serving as a consultant to SCAQMD.
Holden was also blessed with a jaunt to Chili, to the tune of $12k, from the CA Foundation on the Environment and the Economy just as his colleague Mike Gipson received. Difference is Gipson was in Chili for three days, and Holden was there from 11/9-11/21 at the same cost.
