The four candidates in May’s election for Fraser-Nicola MLA have filed their expense reports with the chief electoral officer.

Election expenses ranged from just under $2,000 to over $80,000.

Green Party candidate John Kidder filed for $1,785 and acted as his own financial agent.

Conservative Party candidate Michael Beauclair filed for $2,303.79. Beauclair’s statement shows he didn’t claim any travelling expenses as a candidate because much of his travelling couldn’t be separated from business and work.

Riding winner and current Fraser-Nicola MLA Jackie Tegart of the BC Liberals filed for $87,324.82.

Tegart’s campaign period spending totalled $36,127.77, and spending in the 60-day pre-election period came in at just over $18,000. About $27,000 was transferred back to the BC Liberals.

NDP candidate Harry Lali filed for $70,652, with the majority ($57,457) spent during the campaign period.

Lali was one of 10 candidates to file the report late, past the 90-day period outlined in the Election Act.

His report includes the $500 late filing penalty for filing by the Sept. 11 late filing deadline.

Nine others, including three other NDP candidates, three independents, and one candidate each for the Green, Conservative, and Liberal Parties filed late.

All nine reports have since been filed.
