The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) completed its review of the complaint Glen Morgan filed on July 16, 2019. The complaint alleged that Martha Cunningham (the “Respondent”) may have violated RCW 42.17A.205, .700 & .235 by failing to register as a candidate and file a financial affairs statement within two weeks of declaring candidacy, and timely report contributions & expenditures.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements: the response provided by the Respondent; and the applicable PDC reports filed by Respondent to determine whether they support a finding of one or more violations.
Based on the findings, staff determined that, in this instance, failure to timely file the Candidate Registration (C-1) and Personal Statement of Financial Affairs (F-1) reports does not amount to a violation warranting further investigation.
PDC staff reminded Martha Cunningham about the importance of the timely filing all future PDC reports, including the Candidate Registration and Personal Financial Affairs Statement.
Based on this information, the PDC found that no further action is warranted and dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 08/01/2019)
