Every year in June, county-level elected officials and above in Florida must file a Form 6 – Full and Public Disclosure of Financial Interests. The form requires the official to disclose all assets, liabilities, and sources of income over $1,000 each year. It also requires the disclosure of a business if more than 5 percent is owned and clients that supply more than 10 percent of a business’s gross income. 2023 disclosures reveal that School Board Member Gene Trent reported the lowest net worth of a negative $555,000, and Senator Tom Wright was the highest reporting over $35 million. The complete list is at the end of this article.2022-Gene-Trent
However, effective January 1, 2024, the requirements have been expanded to include all elected mayors and elected members of the governing body of a municipality (city/town councilmen). Previously, those local officials were required to only file a Form 1 which did not include net worth and only required disclosing assets and liabilities exceeding $10,000.
