Agenda Item
Docket No. 19-544
Request that the Board waive the $360 and $40 campaign finance late fees assessed against Pamela T. Bloxom, a candidate for Councilman, District E, City of Minden, Webster Parish, in the November 6, 2018 election, whose Special and 40-G campaign finance disclosure reports were filed 9 and 1 day late, respectively.
Pamela T. Bloxom states that she followed the "Schedule of Reporting and Filing Dates", but those two entries for Special Reports were not numbered and had only circles. She states she missed them....just that simple.

She states that her final report was mailed late January 6th without acquiring a Certificate of Mailing and apparently didn't received a January 7th postmark. She intended that to arrive in your office on the 7th of January.
