SASKATOON - A failed mayoral candidate in the last civic election is headed to court for failing to meet February's campaign expenditures deadline.

Clay Mazurkewich pleaded not guilty in a Saskatoon court Tuesday to violating the Campaign Disclosure and Spending Limits Bylaw.

The case will now go to trial on June 28.

Mazurkewich received just 604 votes in the 2012 election.

In March, he pleaded guilty to carrying a concealed imitation weapon for taking two air soft pellet guns into a bar.

He was fined $750 and had to forfeit the pistols.

Court was told Mazurkewich was on his way to a shooting range when a friend called and asked him to meet up at the bar.

He ended up showing the guns to another patron at the establishment, and police were called.
