Case #73822
Respondent name: Frank Wallbrown
Complainant name: Glen Morgan

On July 22, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that Frank Wallbrown, a first-time candidate for Washington State Public Lands Commissioner in 2020, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to file contribution (C-3) and expenditure (C-4) reports and RCW 42.17A.700 for failure to timely file a Financial Statement of Financial Affairs (F-1) report.  

PDC staff reviewed the applicable statute(s) and rule(s), and reporting requirements related to the annual Personal Financial information and found that Mr. Wallbrown failed to timely file a Personal Statement of Financial Affairs that was due no later than April 15, 2020, including failure to file the 21-day and 7-day pre-primary reports that were due on July 14 and July 28, 2020, respectively. 

Staff issued a reminder letter reminding Mr. Wallbrown about the importance of filing the F-1 report and the required contribution and expenditure reports in a timely number in the future, as required by the law. 

Based on this information, the PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
