Ethics Board Reminds City Government Candidates to File Finance Reports
The municipal primary on May 16 is the first local election since the adoption of new city ethics rules, and the Ethics Hearing Board is reminding candidates of their obligation to file campaign finance reports.
In 2015, Pittsburgh Ordinance 38-2015 (Title I, Article XI, Chapter 198 of the Pittsburgh Code), required individuals declared as candidates for City elected office and candidate committees to file a campaign finance report with the City of Pittsburgh Ethics Hearing Board.
The reports must be in the form required by the regular Allegheny County Board of Elections pre-primary reporting reports and procedures, and must be filed on the first business day of each of the five months prior to Election Day.
The forms are available from the County Elections Office or may be downloaded from the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania website. Candidates can file their reports in person or by mailing them to The Ethics Hearing Board, Room 328, City-County Building, 414 Grant Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15219.
Failure to file campaign finance reports may result in penalties and fines and subject the candidate to an ethics investigation for violation of Title I, Article XI, Chapter 198 of the City Code. The law says the Board may levy a fine of $50 per day for the late filing of reports.
Candidate's Campaign Finance Reports
The City Code requires that candidates for City elected office and candidate committees shall, on the first business day of each of the five (5) months prior to election day, provide a campaign finance report, for all candidate committees associated with the candidate for any office sought, in the form mandated by the regular Allegheny County Board of Elections pre-primary reporting forms and procedures to the City's Ethics hearing Board.
