Case Closed with Written Warning
Description: 

The Public Disclosure Commission (PDC) has completed its review of the complaint filed by Norbert Schlecht on September 11, 2018. The Complaint alleged that Marc Boldt may have violated RCW 42.17A. for failure to accurately disclose personal and spousal income on a Personal Financial Affairs Statement (F-1 report).Pursuant to WAC 390-37-060(1)(b), Marc Boldt will receive a formal written warning concerning failure to accurately disclose personal and spousal income on F-1 reports. The formal written warning will include staff’s expectation that Mr. Boldt will file timely and complete F-1 reports, including income from himself, his spouse and all other reportable information required under RCW 42.17A.710, when completing F-1 reports in future years as a candidate or elected or appointed official. The Commission will consider the formal written warning in deciding on further Commission action if there are future violations of PDC laws or rules.Based on these facts, staff has determined that in this instance, failure to disclose his income and income from his spouse which had no connection to his official duties as chair of the Clark County Council, does not amount to an actual material violation warranting further investigation. The PDC has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).
