It is the candidate’s responsibility to become familiar with the law applicable to campaigns for office. While the candidates may certainly expect the City Secretary’s Office to be able to advise them when reports are due, the City secretary’s Office is limited to serving as a notary, accepting and filing the various applications, affidavits, and statements by noting the date and time of the filing.
