A state public official may use his or her official letterhead to solicit contributions
on behalf of a not-for-profit organization with which the official has
no other connection. The solicitation should be structured so that it is evident
that a contribution would be unlikely to influence the official's judgment.
It would be unreasonable for anyone to believe the official's judgment
would be influenced if the identities of who contributes and who does not are
unknown to the official. The solicitation letter may not be sent to lobbyists or
lobbying principals. OEB 94-1 (February 21, 1994)
