According to the State Office of Campaign and Fiance City Councilor and Chair of the Public Safety Sub-Committee Vesna Noun hasn’t responded to 4 request for information in regards to the fundraising and payments made by his campaign committee. (see pdf attached)
The gentleman Mayor Murphy indicated has a “background in public safety issues in his twenty-plus year career.” seems to think he is above the Law when it comes to filing information and has chosen to ignore since October 11th, 4 letters requesting more information.
This is the man the Mayor thinks is the person who should be heading the Public Safety Sub-Committee? He doesn’t follow the reporting Laws and ignore multiple request from the State office that is charged with watching over these issues and that is okay? Is this the behavior you want in someone who is the councils liaison with the Police?
Is he headed down the same road as former City Councilor Rithy Uong who ignored a decision from the State Ethics Commission and ended up in court and having to resign his Council seat? Councilor Noun could face fines after a period of time if he keeps ignoring these letters. Maybe that $50K settlement will be used to pay the State for some of his own indiscretions and violations. Our Tax money at work.
The Mayor or some of the Councilor’s advisors need to get him to properly fill out the required forms. He raised over $15,000, the public has the right to know where the money came from and his fellow councilors who have already disclosed their information need him to do the same.
IF it gets to the point that the state begins to fine him for not filling out his required forms will the Mayor keep him as chair of public safety?
Why is he chair now?
