The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its initial review of the complaint filed by Lorilee Gill on October 11, 2018. The Complaint alleged that Thomas Taylor may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 for failure to timely and accurately report contributions and expenditures.
Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to accurately register as a candidate, does not an actual material violation warranting further investigation.
PDC staff is reminding Thomas Taylor about the importance of the timely disclosure of all contribution and expenditure activities, including the filing fee, and the timely filings of all future PDC reports, including the F-1 report.
Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1), and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into the Complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
