The complaint alleged Krystal Marx, a 2021 candidate for Burien City Council, Position 5, violated RCW 42.17A.235 and .240 by failing to timely and accurately report contributions and expenditures on Monetary Contributions(C-3) reports and Full Summary Contributions and Expenditures (C-4) reports.
Based on staff findings and the fact the Campaign took prompt action to comply, PDC Staff has determined the alleged non-compliance that appears to constitute violations of PDC laws and rules made by Krystal Marx are remedial in nature, and do not warrant further investigation or enforcement action. They involved expenditures total no more than $500, occurred more than 30 days before the election, were inadvertent and minor in nature, and did not materially affect the public interest. Krystal Marx took corrective action as required by law for a remedial violation and Krystal Marx also substantially met all other required filing due dates within the previous 12-month period.
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: Resolved as Remedial (Resolved 09/14/2021)
