Did Denver City Council candidate Wayne New violate campaign code?

Denver City Council candidate Wayne New’s ads claim he is “neighborhood friendly” and “development smart.” The ads are also in violation of campaign finance law, charges Colorado Ethics Watch.

The organization’s accusation: He has failed to disclose expenses or in-kind contributions on his campaign finance report in relationship to four public signs. As exemplified above, these signs do not state who paid for them.

The political watchdog organization has asked the Denver Elections Division to determine whether or not his campaign violates municipal code. He will have 10 days to update his report and disclose who paid for the ads on the signs. If he does not, Ethics Watch will ask the Elections Division for a hearing to investigate.

New was not available for comment.
