Municipal candidates begin weekly reporting of financial disclosures

Candidates for the Aug. 25 municipal elections were required to begin filing weekly financial statements as of Aug. 3.

Twenty-seven candidates are running in contested races in the municipal elections in Brundidge and Troy. Three Troy council candidates were unopposed and the Goshen mayor and council members are running unopposed.

All candidates were required to file an Appointment of Principal Campaign Committee upon formation of their campaign, with most filing in June and July. Some filed in late 2019.

According to the Secretary of State candidate filing guide, once a candidate has reached the disclosure threshold by either raising or spending $1,000 in total, the candidate is responsible for filing the disclosure reports, itemizing contributions or expenditures of more than $100 he or she is responsible for filing:

• Monthly reports, due no later than the second business day of the following month;

• Weekly reports, due on the Monday of the following week for each of the four weeks before the election date (a week runs Saturday to Friday)

Principal campaign committees that have not reached the contribution/expenditure threshold are not required to file reports. However, the optional Waiver of Report form is available for those who want to make a record of their status.
