Supervisor fined $800 for political reporting violations
August 15, 2014, 05:00 AM By Michelle Durand Daily Journal

Dave Pine

San Mateo County Supervisor Dave Pine will pay an $800 fine by the Fair Political Practices Commission to settle claims he did not file two pre-election campaign finance statements in a timely manner.

The commission will vote Aug. 21 as part of its consent calendar to accept Pine’s stipulation that he did violate California’s Political Reform Act.

The four violations arose during Pine’s campaign for his first full term after serving the remainder of a term he won in a special election. He failed to file statements with the county Elections Office for the period Jan. 1, 2012, through May 19, 2012, by the March 22, 2012, and May 24, 2012, deadlines. He also failed to file two semi-annual campaign statements for the period July 1, 2011, through June 30, 2012, which were due Jan. 31, 2012, and July 31, 2012.

Pine’s committee filed the statements after being notified of a pending Franchise Tax Board audit, according to the FPPC stipulation.

The statements are disclosures of a committee or candidate’s fundraising and expenditures.

Pine said the filings should have been made on time and missing them was an oversight.

“I will not miss a filing deadline in the future,” he wrote in an email to the Daily Journal.

Pine represents District One which includes Burlingame, Hillsborough, Millbrae, San Bruno and South San Francisco east of El Camino Real. He joined the board in May 2011 and was re-elected in June 2012. His current term expires in January 2017.
