    School Board Candidates Fined for Campaign Violations
    NBC10

    Two write-in school board candidates in South Burlington who opposed a decision to drop the "Rebel" school nickname have agreed to pay $250 for campaign finance violations.

    The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/2uG2RTN) Danial Emmons and Marcy Brigham signed an agreement this month to settle the violations and refile their paperwork.

    The violations came ahead of a failed vote to approve a school budget amid a dispute over the decision to drop the mascot name. The budget was later passed.

    The candidates believed the school board should reverse the change or put it to a citywide vote.

    The violations noted by the state include contributions in excess of limits, failure to maintain separate campaign accounts and missing information on campaign signs.
