Apparently, Councilmember Jarvis Johnson likes to use Chronicle reporter Matt Stiles as his own reminder service.
As the reporter notes on the Newswatch: City Hall blog, he’s twice reported that Johnson has been late filing his campaign spending reports (doing so only after inquiries from the Chronicle). The councilmember has also declined to discuss the matter with reporters.
As Stiles notes, it’s even stranger behavior since Councilmember Johnson has spent a trivial amount of money compared to his colleagues. But it’s apparently something Johnson doesn’t want to discuss.
Oh well — at least Stiles serves up the councilmember regular reminders of the legal requirement to file the campaign finance reports.
UPDATE (02-27-2007): Matt Stiles’ report appears in the Chronicle today.
