Department and agency heads are asked to ensure copies of this <br />memorandum are circulated to all officers and employees under their charge, as well as <br />all board and commission members. <br />On December 31, 2019, the State Ethics Commission posted the attached <br />"Guide on Campaign Activities for State Officials and Employees." All County officials <br />and employees are urged to read this document very carefully. <br />The following is a brief summary of the more prominent prohibited political <br />campaign activity and related matters to keep in mind: <br />• Candidate walk-throughs on County premises are strictly prohibited. <br />• Department heads are charged with ensuring such walk-throughs do not <br />occur on County premises. <br />Hawaii County is an Equal Opportunity Employer and Provider <br />
