Status of Investigations: 
Action Commenced by Citizen under Chapter 42.17A RCW

The complaint alleged that the City of Tacoma may have violated RCW 42.17A.550, .555, .255 for unauthorized use of public funds or resources for campaign activitity and failure to report independent expenditures.


This complaint was filed with the PDC and the Attorney General's office as a Citizen Action Notice (CAN). The complainant (by way of a non profit corporation called Washington League for Increased Transparency and Ethics) has filed a lawsuit  in Thurston County Superior Court.


Therefore, PDC staff is administratively closing the complaint filed against the City of Tacoma as noted in this letter, without taking any action, completing a review or pursuing enforcement action.
