The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Erik Larson filed on October 25, 2019. The complaint alleged that Pete Schave (Respondent), a Candidate for Mayor for City of Aberdeen may have violated RCW 42.17A.020, .235 and WAC 390-16-043 for failure to provide access to campaign records and books of account for public inspection.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements and the response provided by the Respondent to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance there is no evidence to support a finding of a violation and does not warrant further investigation.
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 No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 11/15/2019)
