State seeks Ethics Commission members

The Judicial Council is accepting applications to fill two anticipated vacancies on the Hawai‘i State Ethics Commission.

The vacancies will occur upon the expiration of the terms of current members Nadine Ando and Dawn Suyenaga on June 30.

Applicants must be United States citizens, residents of the state of Hawai‘i and may not hold any other public office.

The Ethics Commission regulates the ethics of all legislators, registered lobbyists and state employees (with the exception of judges, who are governed by the Commission on Judicial Conduct).

The Ethics Commission is responsible for investigating complaints, providing advisory opinion and enforcing decisions issued by the Commission.

The Hawai‘i State Constitution prohibits members of the Ethics Commission “from taking an active part in political management or political campaigns.” Interested persons should submit an application along with a resume and three letters of recommendation (attesting to the applicant’s character and integrity) no later than close of business on Feb. 24, to: Judicial Council, Hawai‘i Supreme Court, 417 S. King St., Second Floor, Honolulu, Hawai‘i 96813-2902.

Applications are available from the Judiciary Web site at Applications may also be obtained from the Public Affairs Office, Room 206-C, Ali‘iolani Hala, 417 South Kind St., Honolulu, Hawai‘i 96813 or by calling the Judicial Council at 539-4702.
