More campaign ethics reviewed
Wednesday, November 5, 2014 by Elizabeth Pagano
The Ethics Review Commission continues to stay busy, and recently reviewed ethics complaints against District 4 candidates Greg Casar and Monica Guzman. Only one charge against Casar was substantiated. Though the commission determined that his failure to disclose a donor’s occupation and employer was unintentional, they issued a Letter of Notification sanction to avoid a repeat of the situation. The claim that Casar failed to disclose a bundler was dismissed. Also dismissed were two charges against Guzman. One claimed that she had not entered into a voluntary campaign contract with the city by the deadline. The other alleged that Guzman had not been a resident of District 4 for the six-month period required by charter.
