Danielle Dick is running for Harris County Department of Education. Her husband, Eric Dick, is currently on the board but will leave in January to pursue other interests. He ran unsuccessfully for the Harris County Republican nomination for County Treasurer. Even the Republicans had enough of Dick.
Last March Dick was fined $30,000 by the Texas Ethics Commission, which at the time was the 2nd highest fine in TEC history, for various reasons. His final order can be reviewed here. Usually complaints like Dick’s end in a slap on the wrist, a small fine, and a promise not to do it again. Unfortunately for Dick it ended in a large fine and the TEC referred him to the Texas Bar for possible disciplinary action.
Joe Synoradzki according to LinkedIn works at the Dick Law Firm. He is also the treasurer for Dick’s campaign and at this point should know the rules of the Ethics commission inside and out. He is also the treasurer for Eric’s wife Danielle and as of today has not filed an campaign finance report which was due earlier this month.
Usually not filing a timely report ends with a slap on the wrist, a small fine, and a promise not to do it again. Let’s see how this one plays out.
