      Subject: Notice of Restrictions on Certain Political Activities for Substantial Policymakers

      Pursuant to New York City Conflicts of Interest Board rules, you have been designated as a public servant charged with substantial policy discretion.  You are therefore prohibited from engaging in certain political fundraising activities.   These restrictions are in addition to the general conflicts of interest laws regarding political activities, including but not limited to:  a prohibition on using city resources and/or your city title for personal political activities; and a prohibition on soliciting subordinates to donate or participate in a campaign.   Please see the attached document.  If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me or the New York City the Conflicts Board.
