District Attorney Terence Hallinan may not be raking in the campaign contributions, but he’s not lacking in personal wealth. Hallinan, the incumbent in the fall election, reported financial interests exceeding $2 million in financial disclosure documents filed with the city, but his opponents disclosed little. Bill Fazio reported only his salary from his San Francisco defense practice, and Deputy City Attorney Kamala Harris exercised her option as a government employee to disclose nothing at all. The statement of economic interests is filed by candidates with their nomination papers. The city requires a candidate to disclose salary, any gifts or loans, and all investments in local businesses or real property. The statement is not a full disclosure of a candidate’s assets or income. The many exceptions include government salaries, private homes, mutual funds and government bonds. Because of the exception for government salaries, Harris’ disclosure was blank except for her name, address, what position she was running for and her signature. The Hallinan campaign did not take advantage of the same exception and reported his salary as “over $100,000.” The DA makes $157,000 a year. One of the most valuable assets on Hallinan’s statement was his stake in a family rental-property partnership, valued at more than $1 million. Hallinan did not report any income from the partnership. He also owns a ranch in Sonoma County that his campaign spokesman, Marc O’Hara, referred to as a “ranchette.” It is valued at more than $1 million. Hallinan also reported the proceeds of the sale of his law office about seven years ago as between $10,000 and $100,000, and a $250 gift of 49ers tickets. Defense Attorney Bill Fazio disclosed that his salary was more than $100,000 but did not report any other assets.
