Three elected officials and one former county commissioner candidate are late in filing their semi-annual campaign finance reports to Durham’s Board of Elections.
According to a county schedule, Commissioner Joe Bowser and City Council members Mike Woodard and Farad Ali were supposed to file the reports last Friday, said Michael Perry, deputy director of elections. Josh Parker, who still has an active election committee for when he ran for county commissioner in 2008, also was supposed to turn in a report, Perry said.
If the reports didn’t arrive today, Perry said, the parties will get a reminder phone call, and eventually, could be fined by the state board of elections if they don’t turn in their reports.
Reports were due for other elected officials and candidates who ran in 2008: Mayor Bill Bell, City Council members Howard Clement and Cora Cole-McFadden, County Commissioners Ellen Reckhow and Becky Heron and former commissioner candidate Don Moffitt. Read the reports here.
