(a) Tribal Interests Are Paramount. An elected official shall not use, or attempt to use, any official or apparent authority of their office or duties which places, or could reasonably be perceived as placing, private economic gain of the elected official, or of any special business interests with which they are associated, before those of the Tribal membership, whose paramount interests their office is intended to serve.

(3) Impeding governmental efficiency or economy;
