Agenda Item
Docket No. 21-372
Request that the Board waive the $60, $780 and $2,000 campaign finance late fees assessed against Ryan Huval, a candidate for Clerk of Court, Iberia Parish, for Regular and Unexpired Term in the October 12, 2019 election, whose 10-P, 10-G and 2019 Supplemental campaign finance disclosure reports were filed 1, 13 and 276 days late, respectively.
Ryan Huval requests a waiver and states the following:

He was under the impression that he had someone filing the reports for him. After the election he had a family emergency that required him to move and for that reason he did
not receive any delinquent notices. Once he received correspondence he contacted our office to resolve the situation and he is now up to date with all his filings.

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.
