Akronís Mayor and Council President Seek Review of Campaign Finance Reports


City of Akron Press Release
From the desk of stephanie york
Published: 11-24-2014

            Today, Mayor Don Plusquellic and Council President Garry Moneypenny requested Akron’s Clerk of Council to gather all campaign finance reports of all candidates for the primary and general elections from elections held in 2011 and 2013, so that the contributions to all candidates can be reviewed for compliance with applicable contribution limits and for accurate and complete information.  This includes all candidates for Mayor and for Council in those years.

            This request comes after several people have addressed Council and complained that certain candidates for Council did not comply with campaign contribution limits in the past two municipal elections.  Additional allegations have been made with respect to the Mayoral elections of 2011. 

            The letter to Council Clerk states that the City’s Director of Law will hire an outside attorney to analyze and review all the reports to determine if filings were made as required. 

            “Garry Moneypenny and I have requested that the filings of all candidates during those elections be reviewed.  I specifically went back several elections so that the review would include my filings and Garry’s filings,” said Mayor Plusquellic.  “This is about the public trust, transparency, and confidence in our system and I assure you that all appropriate measures to enforce the law will be taken if violations are found with the reports.”
