Attorney general is bound by ethics rules

Letter to the editor

Posted: Tuesday, December 14, 2004

I recently worked for the state of Alaska as a contracting officer for General Services. During my employment there, I was carefully taught about my responsibilities with regard to ethics, including conflicts of interest. I clearly understood that a conflict of interest or even the appearance of a conflict of interest was not allowed while being employed by the state of Alaska.

I realize that a contracting officer's position isn't as high up the food chain as Attorney General Renkes' position is, but as a state employee, isn't he required to abide by the same rules and regulations that pertain to all state employees?
