Brittany True will pay a $250 fine.

True, 29, won the county clerk's post after winning the June 26 Democratic primary election with 57.2 percent of the vote. No Republican or independent filed for the post. She'll take office in January.

She filed the forms after she was told they were due, according to the agreement with the Ethics Commission. Someone filed a complaint against True in July.

True has worked in the county clerk's office since 2004; Mayes County Clerk Rita Littlefield didn't seek re-election.

The Ethics Commission and True agreed that the conciliation agreement reached Friday would be made public. The Ethics Commission is responsible for enforcing the state's Political Subdivisions Ethics Act at the county level; district attorneys have jurisdiction over municipal and school board elections.
