Transparent Payson is a 527 Political Action Committee. We advocated and were successful in passing two voter-supported propositions as allowed under the Arizona Constitution, and the Town of Payson. The process we used was further codified by the passage of Proposition 105 in 1998.
You will not find our information with the Federal Election Commission (FEC) as we are not a federal group. We are subject to the requirements of the IRS as a 527 group. As this is a local issue, we are formed at the local level. That is done through the Town of Payson. Likewise, county issues and groups are formed at the county level, and state issues and groups are formed at the state level. The requirements for reporting may be found under Arizona Revised Statutes, Title 16 – Elections and Electors.
Various reports are filed and made public with the Town. Should you wish to review the public documents, they may be found via Campaign Finance & Expenditure Reports at the Town of Payson as recorded by the Town Clerk. The 2023 reports are here. Prior years may be found here.
