State Board of Elections Watch

The District 4 candidates were required to file their second pre-primary campaign finance reports last Friday (April 10). As of this writing, the State Board of Elections (SBE) has posted the reports for just four candidates: Cary Lamari, Thomas Hardman, Andrew Padula and George Gluck. SBE's foot-dragging in posting the first filings (including an eleven-day delay for Nancy Navarro's report) prompted four candidates to write a joint letter urging speedy release. Will SBE post the candidates' second filings prior to the District 4 primary on April 21? We will be watching.
