Mr. Orange was advised that he would not violate the Ethics Act’s conflict of interest provisions simply by serving on the D.C. Chamber of Commerce and running for a seat in either primary or general election. Any conflicts of interests, or appearances thereof, would only result from circumstances arising out of his taking office. If he held office while continuing to serve on the Chamber, there would be a real chance for ethical questions to arise, specifically related to perceived conflicts of interests.
