MONTPELIER, Vt. (AP) - The former chairwoman of the South Burlington, Vermont, City Council, has agreed to settle a state complaint that she violated campaign finance law by paying a $2,000 penalty. Two other candidates in the city’s 2013 municipal elections will pay $750 each.

The Vermont attorney general’s office says Pam Mackenzie created a committee called Pam Pac during that election that bought advertising for fellow candidates Chris Shaw and Pat Nowak.

The office says Pam Pac failed to register as a political committee, inaccurately reported its contributions and expenditures, failed to file complete campaign finance disclosure reports, and did not identify itself on the advertisements.

The three former candidates say they disagree with the state’s conclusions but will not go to the trouble and expense of contesting them.
