On October 23, 2019, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that the Woodinville Citizens First (Committee), may have violated RCW 42.17A.205, .210 and .215 by failing to timely and accurately file Committee Registration and RCW 42.17A.320 for failure to disclose complete sponsor identification on a political advertising.
Staff reviewed the allegations; applicable statutes, rules and reporting requirements and the PDC reports filed by the Committee. Staff determined that the Committee failed to file a Candidate Registration in a timely manner, and to include Ms. Boundy-Sanders as the only sponsor in the name of the Committee.
However, the Committee made a good faith effort by responding quickly and working with the PDC filer assistance personnel to file the missing Candidate Registration. The Committee also amended its Last Minute Contribution (LMC) report and the Independent Expenditure report (C-6) to reflect Susan Boundy-Sanders as the sole sponsor of the Committee.
Based on the above, staff issued a reminder in this case and dismissed it in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).Disposition: Case Closed with Reminder (Resolved 11/20/2019)
