Two Cary Town Councilors Must Repay Campaign Money

Posted April 2, 2003

— Two members of the Cary Town Council must repay money they got for their 2001 campaigns.

A Wake Superior Court judge upheld a State Board of Elections ruling against

Jack Smith

,

Julie Aberg Robison

and the town's campaign financing program.

The State Elections Board ruled Cary broke state law by giving the pair too much money. Robison got over $16,000 and Smith received almost $7,000. The limit is $4,000.

Both council members have to pay back the difference.
