State Board of Education: losing candidate files final report 9 months late

The Talladega Daily Home reports: [Sylacauga] City School Board member Skip Smithwick filed his final report on campaign contributions Oct. 6, after questions arose from a member of the state Board of Education.

Smithwick, a member of the City Schools BOE for nine years, ran in the Republican primary for the District 3 state school board seat in 2008. He was defeated by incumbent Stephanie Bell.

Betty Peters, the board?s District 2 representative, asked state Attorney General Troy King in August to investigate Smithwick?s campaign finance reports, according to The Dothan Eagle.

Donations totaling around $52,000 had not been reported. The previous report Smithwick had filed in May 2008 showed donations totaling approximately $253,000. -- Read the whole story --> The Daily Home
