The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Robert Parker filed on August 8, 2019. The complaint alleged that Darcie Kline (Respondent), a candidate for School Director in the Seattle School District 001 may have violated RCW 42.17A.205, .210 and .215 for failure to timely file Candidate Registration report (C-1 report), designate Treasurer information, and disclose Depositories.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; and the applicable PDC reports filed by Respondent, 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, accurately and completely file the C-1 report does not amount to a violation that warrant further investigation.
Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(d), Darcie Kline will receive a formal written warning concerning the timely filing of the Candidate Registration report (C-1 report). The formal written warning will include staff’s expectation that Darcie Kline timely file all future required reports such as the registration, as well as timely report contributions and expenditures where applicable. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or 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 Written Warning (Resolved 09/26/2019)
