Description: 

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its initial review of the complaint filed by Carl Olson on August 2, 2018. The complaint alleged that Our Olympic Communities Enterprise WA may have violated RCW 42.17A.235, .240, .255, .260 & .305 & WAC 390-16-037 for failure to accurately report expenditures & political advertising and timely report contributions.Based on our findings, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to timely report contributions and accurately break down expenditure details do not amount to actual material violations warranting further investigation.Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(b), Our Olympic Communities Enterprise WA will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to timely report contributions and accurately break down expenditure details. The formal written warning will include staff’s expectation that Our Olympic Communities Enterprise WA timely and completely report contribution and expenditure activity in the future. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.The PDC has closed the matter, and will not be conducting a more formal investigation into your complaint or pursuing further enforcement action in this case.
