The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on January 28, 2019. The complaint alleged that Senator Kevin Ranker may have violated RCW 42.17A.700 by failing to accurately and timely report financial interest in a business entity on his Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1 report).
Based on our findings, staff has determined that, in this instance, failure to report financial interest in Coast Policy Group, LLC on F-1 reports for 2014 - 2017 does not amount to an actual violation warranting further investigation. PDC staff is reminding Senator Kevin Ranker about the importance of accurately disclosing all business interests and offices held on his Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1 report).
Senator Kevin Ranker made minor or ministerial errors on required reports, which did not materially impact the public interest. Upon notification of these errors, Senator Kevin Ranker amended his reports, making the necessary technical corrections. The PDC has dismissed the matter and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
