Consensus Statement on Ethics

Members of the League of Women Voters of Hawaii favor a code of ethics which covers all State officials, elected and appointed, paid and unpaid. The code should consist of guidelines rather than rigid prohibitions. These should set forth broad principles of ethics which are designed to protect and inform the public servant as well as the public where private interest might conflict with the public interest. They should provide for fair and equal treatment for people both inside and outside the government. Members believe that a board of ethics should administer the code, applying and interpreting its provisions fairly and flexibly.
