The complaints alleged Crystal Dingler, a 2019 candidate for City of Ocean Shores Mayor, may have violated RCW 42.17A.320 by failing to identify the sponsor of political advertising.

Based PDC staff findings, and the fact the advertising was sponsored by the Committee and candidate pictured in the advertising, with no intent to conceal sponsorship, staff has determined that, in this instance, the failure to include sponsor identification does not amount a violation warranting further investigation. 

PDC staff is reminding Crystal Dingler and the Committee about the importance of identifying the sponsor's name and address on political advertising in accordance with PDC laws and rules.
