The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Paul Williams filed
on September 10, 2019. The complaint alleged that John Losey Jr., a candidate for School
Director for Sumner-Bonney Lake School District may have violated RCW 42.17A.205, .210
and .215 for failure to timely and accurately file Campaign Registration reports (C-1 reports) and
RCW 42.17A.700 for failure to timely and accurately file Personal Financial Affairs Statement
reports (F-1 reports).
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the
response(s) provided by John Losey Jr. 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 file the F-1
report and the C-1 report does not amount to a violation that warrants further investigation.
Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(d), however, John Losey Jr. will receive a formal written
warning concerning failure to timely and accurately file Campaign Registration reports (C-1
reports) and Personal Financial Affairs Statement reports (F-1 reports). The formal written
warning will include staff’s expectation that John Losey Jr. timely and accurately files all future
required reports in accordance with PDC laws and rules. 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).
