The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Glen Morgan on July 26, 2019. The complaint alleged that Lillian (Randy) Slovic (Respondent), 2019 candidate for Richland City Council may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely file Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), disclosing contributions and expenditures undertaken by the Campaign.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by the Respondent; the applicable PDC reports filed by the Respondent; and queried the Respondent’s data in the PDC contribution and expenditure database, to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance, failure to timely, completely, and accurately report in-kind contributions for the candidate’s filing fee and political advertising do not amount to violations that warrants further investigation.
PDC staff is reminding Lillian (Randy) Slovic about the importance of the timely, complete, and accurate disclosure of all contribution and expenditure activities, including in-kind contributions. PDC staff expects timely, complete, and accurate filings of all future PDC reports in accordance with the statutes and rules.
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).Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 08/22/2019)
