FPPC Fines Developer For Not Disclosing Himself as Donor

A San Luis Obispo County developer was fined by the California Fair Political Practices Commission (FPPC) for not disclosing himself as a major donor to County Supervisor Caren Ray’s campaign. The FPPC voted last week to fine Gary Grossman $400 for failing to properly disclose over $10,000 political contributions last year. Grossman was required by California law to report his donations to Ray and County Supervisor Adam Hill by Jan. 31, but Grossman didn’t disclose them until March 21.
