BP: Bemidji City Council candidate fined $500 for campaign violation


November 20, 2018

BEMIDJI—A candidate who ran an unsuccessful bid for the Bemidji City Council At-Large seat has been fined $500 for a violation of Minnesota statute.

The fine was levied by a panel of three judges in the state Office of Administrative Hearings on Friday, Nov. 16, against Don Heinonen. The decision was based on a complaint made by Bemidji citizen Robert Saxton, who alleged Heinonen violated campaign statute by accepting a campaign contribution in excess of the $600 limit.
