Local elected officials fail to file required paperwork with state PDC

Multiple elected officials within Grays Harbor and Pacific counties could face punishment for failing to submit documents related to their political office.

On Thursday, the Washington Public Disclosure Commission will hold a Brief Enforcement Hearing on a number of cases related to candidates and their filing of required documents related to their candidacy or financial records.

Candidates for many elected positions are required to file documents regarding their campaigns and eligibility for office during their campaign.

On that afternoon docket are three local elected officials in Aberdeen City Councilmember Kacey Ann Morrison, North Beach School District Director Steve Rockey, and Port of Ilwaco Commissioner Alan Bennett.

None of these officials are listed as having failed to report the documents prior to this year. 

Bennett is the only local official who is shown to have filed his paperwork after the deadline, but before the hearing.
