Description: 

Your complaint alleged that Lori Sanders, a candidate for Benton County Commissioner Position 2 in 2018, may have violated RCW 42.17A.320 for failure to include sponsor identification on her campaign website.

 

The campaign website created by The Committee to Elect Lori Sanders, County Commissioner, did not include complete sponsor identification as required by law, however, the public was able to reasonably identify the sponsor from the information about Lori Sanders and her candidacy.

Based on these findings staff has determined that, in this instance, failure to include sponsor identification on a website created by The Committee to Elect Lori Sanders, County Commissioner, does not amount to, an actual violation warranting further investigation.
