The complaint alleged Darren LaFavor, a 2019 candidate for Clark County Fire Protection District 6 Fire Commissioner, Position 2, may have violated RCW 42.17A.205 by failing to timely file a Candidate Registration (Form C-1) within two weeks of becoming a candidate.
Staff has determined in this instance, the failure to timely register as a candidate with the PDC within two weeks of his candidacy does not amount to a material violation warranting further investigation.
However, pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(d), LaFavor will receive a formal written warning concerning his failure to timely register as a candidate with the PDC. The formal written warning will include PDC staff’s expectation Darren LaFavor file a Candidate Registration (C-1) timely in future elections.
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 10/22/2019)
