Case #73582
Respondent name: Cyrus Krohn
Complainant name: Martin Buckley

The complaint alleged Cyrus Krohn, a 2020 candidate for House of Representatives, Legislative District 5, Position 1, may have violated may have violated RCW 42.17A.320 by failing to identify a party preference on political advertising, specifically political signs.

The signs did include the party preference text, however PDC staff has noted the confusion when Krohn added the word “for” on the signs and encouraged the candidate to remove the word in future campaigns to improve clarity and transparency. 

Based on this information, the PDC finds that no further action is warranted and has dismissed this matter in accordance with RCW 42.17A.755(1).

Disposition: Case Closed with No Evidence of Violations (Resolved 08/07/2020)
Date opened: 07/16/2020
Area of Law: RCW 42.17A.320
