Some candidate financial statements tardy
Wednesday, September 17, 2014 by Jo Clifton
City Council candidates are required to file detailed and notarized financial statements with the Austin City Clerk’s Office. While the majority of the 78 candidates vying for a position on Council have turned in their documents, there are several who have failed to do so, according to a spokesman in the City Clerk’s Office. The names of those who are now more than a week late in filing those documents include: Ronald Culver, who is running for mayor, Julian Fernandez, District 3; CarolAnnRose Kennedy, District 5; Samuel Osemene, District 1; Todd Phelps, mayor; Eric Rangel, District 3; and John Sheppard, District 2. The statements were due on Monday, Sept. 8. There is no automatic penalty for failing to file on time. However, opponents of those not quite following the law may decide to file a complaint.
