Case #58104
Respondent name: Karen Howe
Complainant name: Deborah Treen

On September 30, 2019, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that Karen Howe, a candidate for City Council Member for the City of Sammamish Position 4 in 2019, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to timely and accurately file the Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure report (C-4 report) disclosing expenditures undertaken by the campaign. 

PDC staff reviewed the allegation, including the applicable statutes, rules and the reporting requirement and found that Ms. Howe reported the expenditure at issue in this complaint on September 17, 2019. 

Based on this finding staff determined that, in this instance, no evidence supports a finding of a violation warranting further investigation. 

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

Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 11/06/2019)
