Lubbock County Commissioner Bill McCay says an amended personal finance report is on file with the county clerk. That's after his opponent in the race for Precinct #1 John Miller filed an ethics complaint against him last week.
Miller says McCay did not list his spouse and her employment. He also says McCay did not properly file the purchase and sale of his homes. Miller filed a complaint with the ethics commission in Austin last week. On Monday, he held a news conference to address his concerns, saying the issue is more about truthfulness.
McCay tells NewsChannel 11 he disagrees with listing anyone but the candidate's accounts. He says he's corrected the problems, and the report will go to the ethics commission. "My charge is to discover an issue, or when it's brought to my attention, or when I look and investigate, to correct it, and that's what I've done is to the best of my ability and the best of my knowledge put down on paper what the state of Texas asked me to do," McCay said.
"When you file this corrected form, you've got to make the same statement, and if he had all this inaccuracy on this one that he swore under oath. Why should we believe a corrected one is going to have all that information," Miller said. Miller says McCay's report disrespects voters and the law.
McCay says he's made the corrections, and says there are more important issues to focus on. NewsChannel 11 will keep folks updated on any new developments.
