Agenda Item
Docket No. 19-1136
Request that the Board waive four (4) $2,000 campaign finance late fees assessed against Nicholas R. P. Wright, a candidate for Mayor, City of Alexandria, Rapides Parish, in the November 4, 2014 election, whose 10-G, 2016, 2017 and 2018 supplemental campaign finance disclosure reports were filed 1745, 980 and 615 days late, respectively. The 2018 supplemental report has not been filed.
Nicholas P. Wright submitted a waiver for 10-G, 2016, 2017 and 2018 supplemental reports and states the following:

He received a letter stating that he did not file a 10-G report by November 26, 2014. He did not file this report as there was no general election for this office. The incumbent won the seat in the primary election.

In reference to the 2016, 2017 & 2018 Supplemental reports, Mr. Wright states the following:

Looking at the "schedule of reporting & filing dates for candidates & PAC," that an annual report is due only if contributions were received or expenditures made for said year. Also, he has filed the 10-G as required which ought to eliminate any discrepancy.
