Dear Andrew Koeppen:
The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Andrew Koeppen on January 24, 2019. The complaint alleged that Angela Birney, Tanika Padhye, and John Marchione (Respondents) may have violated RCW 42.17A.555 by misusing public facilities to support the election campaign of candidate Birney.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; and the response provided by Respondents to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance, no evidence supports a finding of an actual violation warranting further investigation.
Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
