Ethics complaint dropped against Hawaii candidate

By 67AM KPUA News

HILO, Hawaii (AP) A county council candidate on Hawaii's Big Island had an ethics complaint against her dropped.

The Hawaii Tribune-Herald reports that former Councilwoman Emily Naeole was the subject of a complaint by resident Arthur Varady.

Varady says Naeole went into a county senior center and asked the site manager to hand out 20 tickets to her campaign fundraiser. He says that's a clear ethics violation.

The Board of Ethics bars county employees and officers from using public facilities for campaigns. But the Board says it has no jurisdiction over Naeole's campaign because she's not a county employee or officer.

Board member Arne Henricks says that's a double standard. He says it creates two classes of candidates.

Naeole is running in District 4 and her competitors include incumbent Greggor Ilagan.
