Complaint: Kings Co. Supervisor candidate tapping Federal campaign funds for local race

A hotly-contested race to oust a longtime incumbent on the Kings County Board of Supervisors got a bit more interesting.

Kings County Supervisor candidate Adam Medeiros is being accused of not disclosing his candidate committee on his signs and misusing campaign funds from a previous election. 

The accusations come from a complaint filed with the Fair Political Practices Commission, alleging that Medeiros has violated the Political Reform Act. 


The big picture: According to the complaint filed with the political watchdog, Medeiros’s signs do not display a disclosure of his candidate committee – a requirement of the Political Reform Act. 

  • The complaint also accuses Medeiros of misusing funds from his 2022 Congressional run for the 22nd District in his race for the Kings County Board of Supervisors. 
  • Medeiros is one of several candidates challenging Supervisor Richard Fagundes and serves as a trustee on the Kings County Board of Education. 

What they’re saying: “Adam’s violations of the law are not ignorance. He has run for office multiple times, but is simply choosing to disregard the law this time around,” the complaint reads.
