City council campaign reports clarified

(Continued)

NORMAN —

Under the Norman code provision, there is a fine of $10 per day up to $100 for missing the deadline. Since the group was seven days late, they paid a $70 fine.

“I don’t think it would’ve come to their attention if it were not for the hard work of Kristina so I appreciate her effort on that,” Bryant said.

Aside from discussion of those two groups, the commission reviewed campaign contributions and expenditures for all of the candidates. Both the municipal and state reports were reviewed for each candidate.

The only discussions about the reports included a contribution labeled as an analyst to Robert Castleberry, Ward 3, which board members said they would like more information about and an item listed under Linda Lockett’s state report as “Vote Kauffman.”

The item was a filing requirement to close Lockett’s campaign account, which City Clerk Brenda Hall said she would be following up on.

The state report for Greg Heiple, Ward One, was also tabled until the election commission’s next meeting because Hall forgot to bring copies of it. The state report shows the same items listed on the municipal report though Hall said, which was available at the meeting.

All other campaign contributions and expenditures for candidates were accepted without much discussion.
