The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Peter Starzynski filed on December 23, 2019. The complaint alleged that Jami Lund, a 2019 candidate for School Director for Centralia School District 401 may have violated RCW 42.17A.240 for failure to timely and accurately file Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports) and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), disclosing contributions and expenditures, including details, undertaken by the Campaign.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the response provided by the Respondent; the applicable PDC reports filed by the Respondent; and queried the Respondent’s data in the PDC contribution and expenditure database to determine whether the record supports a finding of one or more violations.
Based on our findings staff has determined that, in this instance, failure to timely accurately disclosure of contribution and expenditure details on C-3 and C-4 reports does not amount to a violation that warrants further investigation.
PDC staff is reminding Jami Lund about the importance of the timely and accurate disclosure of all contribution and expenditure activities, and the timely and accurate filings of all future PDC reports in accordance with the statutes and rules.
The PDC encourages you to review the Candidate Instructions and the many other guides and videos available in the Learn, Guides and training videos section of the www.pdc.wa.gov website to further understand the rules for candidates.
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 Reminder (Resolved 02/14/2020)
