SEATTLE (AP) - The Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission has fined the city’s transportation director up to $10,000.

The Seattle Times reports (https://bit.ly/29lGQOQ ) that Director Scott Kubly agreed in a June 21 settlement to pay $5,000 for two violations of Seattle’s Ethics Code. He will have to pay another $5,000 if he commits another ethics violation within two years.

The commission cited Kubly because was involved in negotiations with his former employer, but never obtained a waiver and didn’t file a disclosure form until September 15. He was deeply involved in the launch of the company’s bike share system in late 2014.

Former prosecutor Marilyn Brenneman conducted the commission’s investigation and found no evidence that Kubly sought or received personal financial gain.

Kubly apologized for the mistake and said it won’t happen again.
