The Respondent is a registered lobbyist, employed by WA Public Employees Association, who failed to submit a recent photograph to the PDC as required per RCW 42.17A.605. The Respondent took corrective action and uploaded the missing photograph on March 25, 2019. Prior attempts to upload the photo were unsuccessful due to technical and account access issues.
Based on its findings, PDC staff determined that, in this instance, failure to submit a photograph for a lobbyist registration does not amount to an actual violation warranting further investigation. PDC staff reminded the Respondent about the importance of submitting a recent photograph when registering as a lobbyist, maintaining current contact and lobbyist information with the PDC, and the timely filing of all future required lobbyist registration information. The PDC dismissed the matter and did not conduct a more formal investigation into the complaint or pursue further enforcement action in this case.Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 04/02/2019)
