Ronald Wastewater candidate Webster files PDC complaint against opponent Matthews

Ronald Wastewater commission candidate George Webster has filed a complaint with the State Public Disclosure Commission against appointed incumbent Richard Matthews because Matthews has used the term "re-elect" in advertising materials despite a rule that forbids use of that term for anyone who has not been elected to the position he is running for.

A PDC spokeswoman said Thursday that a first offense for such a complaint would bring an order to cover or remove the improper word from any existing material, and a warning not to do it again.

Webster and Matthews are meeting in the November election after Webster led Matthews 39 percent to 37 percent in a three-way August primary.

George Webster did not include who paid for his Seattle Times inserts nor did he include an address as required by the PDC, Gretchen Atkinson also did not do this in her primary Seattle Times insert.

Pot, meet kettle...

Who did pay for the George Webster and pro-takeover electioneering materials mailed out this week in the Times insert?

Why is there no mention here of Shoreline School District employee Craig Degginger's distant (23%) third place finish in the Primary?
