Please confirm receipt of this document.
I would like to self report a violation of campaign finance law. After receiving incorrect information from the city clerk (verified by the secretary of state’s office) I accepted 4 contributions of $500.00. I received confirmation on September 5th that the limit should have been $300.00. As of this morning I have bank initiated refunds of $200.00 to each of the 4 parties. Two of the parties are my wife and I which I do not know if the same limits apply. For confidentiality reasons I am not attaching the bank reference documents, however I will provide them to your office upon request.
I personally apologize for the error. I believe in transparency and take personal responsibility for following all laws. I feel it is my responsibility to report when I violate those laws, even when it is done unintentionally.
