Docket No. 19-489
Request that the Board waive the $2,000 and $2,000 campaign finance late fees assessed against Joy R. Jackson, a candidate for District Judge, 6th Judicial District Court, Div., in the November 6, 2018 election, whose 10-P and 10-G campaign finance disclosure reports were filed 135 and 105 days late, respectively.

Additionally, she had major family issues surrounding her mother's illness and death and was overwhelmed with the actions needed to be taken.

18:1505.4.A(1) Any candidate, the treasurer or chairman of a political committee, or any other person required to file any reports under this Chapter, who knowingly fails to file or who knowingly fails to timely file any such reports as are required by this Chapter may be assessed a civil penalty for each day until such report is filed.

18:1495.4D(1) If the final report of a candidate for an election, as required by Paragraph (5), (6), or (7)of Subsection B of this Section, shows a deficit or a surplus, the candidate and his treasurer, if any, shall file supplemental reports with the supervisory committee of all information required in R.S. 18:1495.5. Such reports shall be filed annually no later than February fifteenth and shall be complete through the preceding December thirty-first. Such a supplemental report shall be filed each year until a report has been filed which shows no deficit and until any surplus campaign funds have been disposed of in accordance with R.S. 18:1505.2(I).
