Do I have to fill out a Notice of Intent?
If a candidate is funding their entire campaign out of their own pocket, there is no requirement for them to give a notice of intent. Only when a candidate expects to receive campaign contributions are they required to register with the City. It is recommended that candidates complete this process as soon as possible to begin collecting campaign funding and contributions. Candidates, under legislation, are not allowed to accept campaign contributions or funds without notifying the City of their intent to run.
