Environmental activist Clay Colson has filed the latest in a string of complaints against County Commissioner Ann Hildebrand, this time alleging the commissioner failed to itemize the postage costs of a mailing listed on her campaign finance reports.
Hildebrand paid Civic Action Group $11,429.73 for the mailing, which included postage, but the item is listed on her campaign finance report as "print for mailing." In a complaint filed with the Florida Elections Commission, Colson argued that the postage should have been listed separately. Hildebrand said the bill for the mailing was all-inclusive: "I didn't get a separate bill for postage," she said.
Colson has a spot on the Florida Elections Commission's agenda Nov. 17-18 to argue that the panel should not dismiss one of his earlier complaints, in which he alleged Hildebrand improperly used the address of her secondary home on her voter registration card. Hildebrand maintains that home as her legal address, although she spends most of her time at her husband's house a block away.
