Former city councillor Cameron Stolz has been disqualified from being nominated for, elected to or holding a local authority office in B.C. until after the next municipal election.
School District 57 candidate Mike Rositano was also disqualified for failing to file by the late-filing deadline.
Stolz and Rositano were among 48 candidates throughout B.C who were disqualified from running in the next municipal election, after they failed to disclose their campaign financing disclosure statements by the late-filing deadline of Feb. 13, according to a list provided by Elections BC.
In a column published in the Citizen on Feb. 15, Stolz said he filed his documents a day late, and raised and spent $6,516.65 on his campaign and reused $2,000 worth of sign frames.
School District 57 trustee Bob Thompson was fined $500 for filing his finance papers late. Thompson was elected by acclamation, as the only school district candidate to come forward in the Robson Valley, and reported no campaign activity.
