MACOMB COUNTY, MI – A question was posted today to a group that we keep an eye on because it provides some very interesting information about Macomb County but also asks some intriguing questions. One such question was posted earlier today by a member of that group.

The original question asks the reader to look a list of candidates or committees in current or past elections that owe money in Macomb County:

Check out the list of Campaign Committees that owe money in Macomb County. I get missing a date and incurring a small fine, but how in world are we letting some of these candidates or committees get away with not following election laws and paying fines owed for their violation? Some of these people are on the ballot today (they should have cleared up their payment before election day).

Macomb County makes it easy to follow the money in county and local campaigns. The Macomb County Clerk posts online a list of candidates or campaign committees that owe fines for violating campaign finance rules.campaign-finance-money

After following the link that was provided, an amazing list of the candidates or committees is listed. The top two owe $18,850 and $15,000 respectively. The total entire list of what is owed to Macomb County is $275,225. Even if the candidate or committees were unsuccessful in an election, obligations to pay those fines do not just disappear.

The top owing committee, Fitgerald Public Schools Citizens Committee, have fines dating back to March of 2010. They have continued to rack up more fines for the next 8 years to the tune of $18,850. Phone calls were placed to Judy Furgal who appears to be the responsible individual for the committee. None of the telephone numbers provided were answered.

Unofficial election results have Democrat Fred Miller winning the election to fill the remainder of the four-year Macomb County Clerk term vacated when Karen Spranger who was ousted from office by a judge earlier this year. Mr. Miller should make the list one of many items to be a priority to get cleaned up once he is sworn into office.

A list of political delinquents is as follows:
