A Bridgeport School Board member who is accused of living outside of the city while serving on the panel has been ordered to pay a $750 fine.
The fine was issued against board member Chris Taylor in a document from the state's Elections Enforcement Commission.
The commission states that Taylor has agreed to pay the fine, but Taylor claims he never agreed to anything, and certainly not to what's spelled out in the document.
According to the document, Taylor was fined $750 for allegedly not living in Bridgeport, as required by law, while sitting on the school board.
Former school board member Maria Pereira, who now sits on the Bridgeport City Council, made the original complaint against Taylor.
Pereira says the agreement, regardless of whether Taylor knew about it or agreed to it, does not go far enough in penalizing him for what she says is a "very serious violation."
Taylor still serves on the board and is up for re-election.
