On July 27, 2020, the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) received a complaint alleging that Devin Beach, a first-time candidate for the County Commissioner (Position 1) in Pend Oreille County, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235 for failure to provide digital access to books of account within 48 hours of the request.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint to determine whether a formal investigation or enforcement action is warranted. Staff reviewed all attachments submitted with the complaint, the statute, rule, and the July 28, 2020 response from Mr. Beach.
Staff's review found no evidence to support a finding of a violation warranting further investigation or enforcement action. Based on this information, the PDC staff dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 09/04/2020)
