This complaint was filed with the Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) on April 11, 2018. The complaint alleged that Roslynne Reed, a 2016 candidate for Mason County Commissioner, may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .265, .205, .320, and .255 by failing to timely and accurately disclose contributions, expenditures, books of account, committee registration, and sponsor ID.
PDC staff reviewed the allegations listed in the complaint, the statutes, rules and reporting requirements, the Campaign Registrations (C-1 reports), Monetary Contributions reports (C-3 reports), and Summary Full Campaign Contribution and Expenditure reports (C-4 reports).
Staff found that half of the alleged late filed C-3 and C-4 reports were for amended filings for which the initial C-3 and C-4 reports were filed timely. However, Ms. Reed did file a small number of late C-3 and C-4 reports as alleged, such as the June 2016 C-4 report disclosing an $807 in-kind contribution for the candidate filing fee, and the 7-Day Pre-Primary Election C-4 report disclosing newspaper advertisements placed in the Kitsap Sun.
Case closed with a written warning.
