Dan Rodrigues misses expense filing deadline, can't run in 2018

News Apr 07, 2015 Hamilton Mountain News

Dan Rodrigues, a council candidate in Ward 6 last fall, will not be running for municipal office in 2018.

Rodrigues failed to file his campaign expenses by the March 27 deadline set out in the Municipal Act. He said he intended to file that day but a family emergency changed his plans.

“It’s a bit unfortunate that there appears to be no wiggle-room for those who experience life situations outside of one’s control,” said Rodrigues. “However, the act is in place to ensure that individuals do not misuse the filing requirements. In my case, I have to deal with both the failing health of my mother, and letting my supporters down. I own this consequence, and will accept it accordingly.”

Rodrigues said he had $3,223.06 in expenses, with $1,550.00 in individual cash and in-kind donations for his failed 2014 election bid.
