Applicants Sought for Ethics Commission

News Release from Hawaii Judiciary February 17, 2016

HONOLULU, Hawaii – The Judicial Council is accepting applications to fill an upcoming vacancy on the Hawaii State Ethics Commission created by the expiration of the term of Commissioner Susan DeGuzman on June 30, 2016.

Applicants must be U.S. citizens, residents of the State of Hawaii, and may not hold any other public office.  The Hawaii State Constitution prohibits members of the Ethics Commission "from taking an active part in political management or political campaigns."

Applicants from all islands may apply.  Travel expenses incurred by neighbor island members to attend meetings on Oahu will be reimbursed.

The Ethics Commission addresses ethical issues involving legislators, registered lobbyists, and state employees (with the exception of judges, who are governed by the Commission on Judicial Conduct).  The five commission members are responsible for investigating complaints, providing advisory opinions, and enforcing decisions issued by the Commission.

Interested persons should submit an application, a resume, and three letters of recommendation (attesting to the applicant’s character and integrity) postmarked by Friday, March 18, 2016 to:

Judicial Council

Hawaii Supreme Court

417 S. King Street, Second Floor

Honolulu, Hawaii  96813-2902

An application is available on the Judiciary website or can be obtained from the Communications and Community Relations Office, Room 212, Aliiolani Hale, 417 South King Street, Honolulu, Hawaii 96813, or by calling the Judicial Council at 539-4702.
