Case #57702
Respondent name: Skagit County Republicans bonafide political party committee
Complainant name: Sandra Robson

On September 19, 2019, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that the Skagit County Republicans, a Continuing Bona fide County Political Party Committee, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 by failing to timely file Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports) during the 2019 election cycle. 

PDC staff reviewed the allegation, including the applicable statutes, rules and the reporting requirements and found that the Committee failed to timely file 21-Day Pre-Primary Election C-4. This report was required to be filed on July 16, 2019.  On September 2019, the Committee filed the June C-4 report and the July C-4 report on October 2, 2019.  

Based on this finding staff decided to resolve this matter by having the Committee sign a Statement of Understanding and paying a penalty.  On December 10, 2019, the PDC received an executed Statement of Understanding (SOU) signed by the Committee, along with a $150 civil penalty payment. By signing the SOU, the Committee acknowledged violating RCW 42.17A.235 by failing to timely file the 21-Day Pre-Primary Election C-4 report. 

Based on this information , staff dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
