In Re: Audit Report Committee to Elect John French
A campaign treasurer for a candidate for the legislature may be required to keep records for four years, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes §9-607(t). William Navratil served as the treasurer of the 2010 candidate committee to elect John E. French for the General Assembly. Navratil was required to keep campaign records for four years, pursuant to Connecticut General Statutes §9-607(t). The statute provides, "The campaign treasurer shall preserve all internal records of transactions required to be entered in reports filed pursuant to section 9-608 for four years from the date of the report in which the transactions were entered." State Elections Enforcement Commission workers who inspected Navratil's records were unable to locate certain contracts that had been disclosed on Form 30. The State Elections Enforcement Commission opened an investigation. After Navratil or another member of the campaign was able to locate the records and supply them to the commission, the commission concluded that Navratil did not violate C.G.S. §9-607(t).
