Qualifications: Applicants must be residents of Tulare County, be able to regularly attend LAFCO meetings, and not be officers or employees of the County or any city or special district (not including school districts). The public member is a public official and required to file a standard financial disclosure statement annually with the California Fair Political Practices Commission.
