Paterson NJ Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman faces $25K fine on campaign finance

PATERSON — Former councilman Mohammed Akhtaruzzaman faces more than $25,000 in fines for not filing campaign finance reports for Paterson’s special election in November 2020.

The New Jersey Election Law Enforcement Commission filed a complaint against Akhtaruzzaman last month accusing him of not filing three required finance reports from Paterson’s 2nd Ward race in November 2020.

The state complaint says the former councilman faces a maximum fine of $8,600 for each of the three violations.

“I’m mailing it now,” Akhtaruzzaman said when contacted by a reporter on Tuesday. “I just had to make a correction.”

The reports were due in October and November of 2020, according to ELEC.

Paterson City Council President Shahin Khalique, the winner of the 2020 special election in the 2nd Ward, also failed to meet the state campaign finance reporting deadlines, according to documents on ELEC’s website.
