Case #74699
Respondent name: Evergreen Progress 2020
Complainant name: Steven Lydolph

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint Steven Lydolph filed on August 5, 2020. The complaint alleged that “Evergreen Progress 2020” (Respondent), a political committee, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .240, .255, .260, and .305 for failure to timely and accurately file Monetary Contribution reports (C-3 reports), Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports), and Independent Expenditure or Electioneering Communication reports (C-6 reports), disclosing contributions and expenditures 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, no evidence supports 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).
