Three local candidates miss deadline to file disclosure forms

By James Clark | email

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) – Three local candidates for office did not file their financial disclosure statements on time, KCBD NewsChannel 11 has learned. The deadline was Tuesday February 16th. County Clerk Kelly Pinion says, by law, she must report this information to District Attorney Matt Powell within 10 days of the deadline. If it is shown that candidates missed the deadline then Powell could choose to pursue Class B Misdemeanor charges if he wants to.

Rex Andrew, challenger for Justice of Peace Precinct 1, and incumbent Justice Of The Peace Precinct 4 Jean Ann Stratton did not file according to Pinion.

A third candidate did not file, however, Pinion says that's because of an oversight from her office. Incumbent Justice Of The Peace Aurora Hernandez Precinct 3 was not given notice by the County Clerk that her disclosure was due on February 16th.

KCBD NewsChannel 11 tried reaching Stratton and Andrew by phone late Thursday afternoon. Calls were made to both work and home numbers.

UPDATE: Rex Andrew returned a call Thursday evening.  He says, "The mistake was mine alone.  I failed to put this deadline on my ca lender.  I apologize, and I will correct it as soon as I can."
