The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Jason Chu filed on January 12, 2020. The complaint alleged that North Thurston Public School District Officials (Respondent), a Public Agency in the State of Washington may have violated RCW 42.17A.555 for misuse of public facilities by producing and distributing political advertising that supports or opposes a candidate or ballot proposition, levy or bond.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations; the applicable statutes, rules, and reporting requirements; the responses 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 supporting a finding of a violation that warrants 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 02/26/2020)
