The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Robert Parker filed on August 8, 2019. The complaint alleged that Kristen Deskin (Respondent), a candidate for School Director for Renton School District 403, may have violated RCW 42.17A.205, .210 and .215 for failure to timely file the Campaign Registration report (C-1 report); and RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely file Cash Receipts, Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), and Receipts & Expenditure Summary reports.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by the Respondent; and the applicable PDC report 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 file the C-1 report timely, does not amount to a violation that warrants further investigation.
Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(d), Kristen Deskin will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to timely file the required Campaign Registration report (C-1 report). Staff expects Kristen Deskin to file all future required reports such as the Campaign Registration (C-1), Cash Receipts, Monetary Contributions (C-3) and Receipts & Expenditure Summary (C-4) timely. 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 10/07/2019)
