The Washington State Office of the Insurance Commissioner has disciplined two Lynnwood insurance agents.
Both Andre Davis and Paul Pukis received fines. The following were the Commissioner’s findings:
Andre Davis, Lynnwood; fined $500
Davis applied for an insurance license in 2010 and renewed the license in 2015. On both applications, Davis indicated he had no criminal history. Background checks revealed that Davis had a felony conviction in 2004 and a gross misdemeanor conviction in 2005.
Paul Pukis, Lynnwood; fined $250
Pukis made misleading claims on the Washington Marijuana Business Association website regarding his relationship with the Insurance Commissioner and with the state Liquor Control Board in an effort to market to entrepreneurs who were looking for commercial marijuana insurance.
