Central Denver council candidate admits campaign finance slip-ups

Wayne New, one of five candidates running for City Council to represent central Denver’s District 10, says his campaign “overlooked” a couple campaign finance rules by not printing disclosures on campaign signs or fully listing the spending on his finance reports.

The possible violations were called out this week by a left-leaning watchdog group. Colorado Ethics Watch in Wednesday’s complaint asked the Denver Elections Division to determine if New violated finance rules for four large campaign signs he’s had up in and near downtown, at parking lots owned by a supporter, since at least early February. They’re blown-up versions of his yard signs.
