All citizens have the right to have full disclosure of financial affairs of political campaigns for candidates running for public office.  "The Public Disclosure Commission was created and empowered by Initiative of the People to provide timely and meaningful public access to accurate information about the financing of political campaigns, lobbyist expenditures, and the financial affairs of public officials and candidates, and to ensure compliance with and equitable enforcement of Washington's disclosure and campaign finance laws"

I invite you to visit the PDC website to learn about the financial aspects of my campaign and any other campaign you may be interested in.  There you will see who has contributed to my campaign....from hundreds of individuals all over the county to groups representing police and sheriffs to school teachers to bus drivers and nurses to firefighters....I am honored to have their endorsements and this show of their support for my re-election.  The people in Kitsap County know that I represent all my constituents and I am proud of their support.

If you would like to make a donation to my re-election campaign, just click here.

Thank you!

Public Disclosure In Washington State

"The public's right to know of the financing of political campaigns and lobbying and the financial affairs of elected officials and candidates far outweighs any right that these matters remain secret and private." [RCW 42.17.010(10)]

The above quotation is from the policy provisions of the Open Government Act, better known as the Public Disclosure Law, which aptly summarizes both the impetus for and the purpose of the statute.

  1. The Public Disclosure Commission is created pursuant to RCW 42.17.350. The Commission's powers and duties are set forth in RCW Sections 42.17.360, 42.17.365, 42.17.367, 42.17.370, 42.17.395, and other provisions of RCW Chapter 42.17.
