On October 29, 2019, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that Kevin Schilling, a first-time candidate for City Council Member position for the City of Burien in 2019, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 for failure to timely and accurately report expenditures for political advertising.
Staff review found that Mr. Schilling should have reported all the orders placed for political advertising in June 2019, on the original 21-Day Pre-Primary C-4 report as required by law. Based on this determination, pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(d), staff issued a formal written warning to Mr. Schillings concerning his failure to timely and accurately report expenditures for political advertising. The Commission will consider this formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws and rules.
Based on this information, Staff dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).Disposition: Case Closed with Written Warning (Resolved 12/06/2019)
