Council President Garry Moneypenny announced at the end of Monday's Council meeting that he and Mayor Don Plusquellic have asked for an independent audit of all Council and mayoral campaign finance reports from 2011 to present. The request comes after several people have addressed Council and complained that certain candidates 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. “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,” said Mayor Plusquellic.
