Byelection hopeful fails to file

Former school trustee candidate Corey Neyrinck is facing a $500 fine for failing to file his election expense disclosure statement.

A former school trustee candidate is facing a $500 fine and the risk of not being able to run in future elections.

A report that came to city council this week cited Corey Neyrinck for failing to file his election expense disclosure statement within the 120 day timeline following the close of an election.

Neyrinck ran in last November’s school trustee byelection.

Financial reports needed to be received by March 31.

The financial statement is a public document that shows how much a candidate received in donations, and how much they spent on their campaign.

As well, if the candidate has a balance of donated funds remaining following the election, the City holds onto those funds and if the candidate chooses to run in future elections, they will go towards their future campaigns.

Even if a candidate doesn’t spend any money on their campaign, they are still required to file an election expense disclosure statement, said city officials.

Neyrinck has until April 31 to file his financial statement with the $500 late-fee penalty. If he still fails to do so, he will not be eligible to run in any of the next local elections.

The Progress attempted to contact Neyrinck for comment through phone and email but did not receive response.
