The California Fair Political Practices Commission has fined a San Bernardino Community College board member and his campaign treasurer $6,000 for failing to report campaign contributions on time.

The state ethics watchdog agency approved the fine at its May meeting and sent an enforcement letter last month to John Futch, who was elected to the board in 2008, and his treasurer, Fermin Ramirez.

Futch’s campaign failed to file campaign contribution reports by the deadlines during two reporting periods before the November election, according to an FPPC document. As a result, campaign finance information was not available to voters before the election.
