Agenda Item
Docket No. 17-078
Request that the Board waive the $320 campaign finance late fee assessed against Clay Nugent, in his capacity as a candidate for Chief of Police, Village of Georgetown in the November 8, 2016 election, whose 10-G campaign finance disclosure report was filed 8 days late.
Clay Nugent states that he submitted an EDE- P report instead of the report that was required. Several days after submitting the EDE-P report, he states he received a letter that the 10-G report was past due and he immediately submitted the correct form. He explains that this is his first election and he didn't have a campaign manager or anyone with experience to assist him.
