CONYERS -- With the runoff election next week, at least one local candidate has yet to file required campaign reports.
Willie J. Washington, a runoff candidate for the Board of Education Post 5 seat, has not filed his campaign contribution disclosure report and his personal financial disclosure statement with a state office.
The runoff elections will be held Tuesday, Aug. 21.
Candidates running for public office are required to file these reports with the Georgia Government Transparency and Campaign Finance Commission, formerly known as the Georgia Ethics Commission.
Washington said Thursday that he recently moved but has already been in touch with the commission to obtain his PIN number to access its website.
"I just never really sat down to do anything with it," he said.
Washington said he plans to complete the required forms "relatively soon."
Already Washington has been charged $250 for not filing reports by June 9 and June 30, according to the commission's website.
Washington's opponent, William "Tony" Dowdy, filed his personal financial disclosure statement with the commission on June 4. The commission received his campaign contribution reports on Jan. 5 for Dec. 31, May 11 for March 31 and July 9 for June 30, according to the site.
Dowdy is not listed on the late filer list with the commission.
