Gigi and others--
Your friend is correct although the filing dates are January and July, not June. There are several more filings as well as you get closer to Election Day.
That does not apply to candidates for federal office who must file with the FEC and not the state BOE. Also, the federal threshold is $5000, but the state is only $1000.
If you are running, you need to (1) get a separate taxpayer ID number for your campaign committee, (2) appoint a Treasurer (who will be personally responsible for filings so make sure it's someone reliable), (3) open a bank account in that name and number and (4) have the Treasurer talk to me.
Also I mistakenly told you the signature total is 2700 for state senate. It's actually 3000.
