This afternoon, Craig Gier, candidate for Mayor, filed a Request For Hearing (see linked scanned form).
Mr. Gier states that "I believe that Sho Dozono violated public financing laws by not claiming his poll that was dated December 21, 2007. The poll which cost $27,295 violates in kind contribution limits." Further, Mr. Gier states that "In kind contributions are capped at $12,000 for publicly financed candidates."
Per City Code Section 2.10.230, the hearing must be held not later than 7 days after the Request for Hearing is filed. As the Request For Hearing was filed today, the hearing must be held not later than Monday, March 17, 2008. Scheduling information will be released as soon as it is available.
The Citizen Campaign Commission will coordinate with the hearing requestor, the Auditor and the Oregon Office of Administrative Hearings. An Oregon State administrative law judge will preside over the hearing.
