Ethics Commission: No finance report from Stuber

ENID, Okla. — House District 38 candidates Roy Chaney and Jason Warren both filed their campaign finance reports by Wednesday morning.

The reports of donations and expenditures were due in to the Oklahoma Ethics Commission Monday, and they both told the Enid News & Eagle that the late filings were an oversight.

Nardin Republican Ralph Meade filed his on time but did so with a paper report. Per Ethics Commission policy, files submitted this way are not displayed or listed anywhere on its website. Meade is one of six Republicans in the HD 38 race.

The News & Eagle reported Tuesday that a filing from Mike Stuber’s campaign had not shown up on the Ethics Commission’s website. Stuber, an Enid City Commissioner, is one of two candidates running in the HD 40 Republican primary. His campaign treasurer previously told the Enid News that the report had been submitted over the weekend, but it was not visible on the Ethics Commission’s website. An employee of the Ethics Commission said Wednesday morning that they had not received a filing from Stuber’s campaign.

According to his report, Meade raised $7,375 between April 1 and June 9. He spent slightly more than that, which left him with $2,220.

Chaney raised $4,000 and ended the reporting period with more than $12,000, which could be useful if there is a primary runoff election.

Warren told the Ethics Commission that he collected $1,250 in the past two months and spent roughly 75 percent of all his available funds going into Tuesday’s primary.
