MLA Don Morgan changing office sign after complaint
NDP received complaints about signage at Don Morgan's office
After accusations arose alleging a violation of the rules concerning election campaign signs, Saskatchewan Party MLA Don Morgan is changing the signage at his constituency office in Saskatoon.
The NDP said they received complaints after someone noticed a "Re-elect Don Morgan" sign in the window of an office building in Saskatoon.
The window is underneath a large building sign that indicates Don Morgan's constituency office is located in the building.
However, his constituency office is in the back of the building.
Morgan's campaign office, which opened ahead of the April 4 vote, is in the same building. The campaign poster was displayed in the campaign office window.
Both Elections Saskatchewan and the Speaker of the Legislature said Morgan did not break any rules.
However, Morgan said he will have the large constituency office sign taken down.
"I've asked the landlord to take the sign down regardless of what the election requirements are," Morgan said Wednesday. "I don't want there to be issues of confusion at all."
Morgan is the MLA for Saskatoon Southeast.
Constituency offices are publicly funded to support the work of MLAs.
