In response to the complaint filed by Rich Lettman against the Grace Hecht for District 2 Supervisor, the director of Mohave County Elections has decided to dismiss the complaint.

Here is the response from Steve Harris, Deputy Elections Director

Dear Mr. Lettman:

On April 8, 2024, you filed a Campaign Finance Law complaint with our office alleging Grace Hecht accepted prohibited campaign finance donations from Tri-State Wifi, LLC, in the amount of $1,000, Bullhead Marina Plaza, LLC, in the amount of $250,  and Out of the Box, LLC, in the amount of $1000.

On April 9, 2024, Robynne Mieding, Ms. Hecht’s, Treasurer, contacted our office advising that she was aware she made a mistake by accepting the above-named  donations and immediately began taking steps to correct her mistake.  Before the end of the day of April 9, 2024, Ms. Mieding returned the amounts in question to each named LLC and provided Mohave County Elections with documentation.  Furthermore, she provided a notated Campaign Finance Report, posted on our website, describing the mistake, and that the correction will show on Ms. Hecht’s second quarter Campaign Finance Report.

Mohave County Elections finds that the above-named funds accepted by candidate, Grace Hecht, are prohibited funds; that Ms. Hecht took immediate action to return the funds once the mistake was realized and did, in fact, return the funds; that candidate understands the gravity of her mistake and will take steps to avoid such a mistake in the future.

Therefore, Mohave County Elections is dismissing the complaint your complaint against Grace Hecht finding that the alleged violation has been remedied and is not likely to be repeated.  [AZ Secretary of State, 2023 Election Procedures Manual, p.264].

 

Sincerely,

Steve Harris

Deputy Elections Director

Mohave County
