Subject to the restrictions and conditions set forth in this policy, elected officials are free to engage in lawful financial transactions to the same extent as the general public. The Council may, however, adopt further restrictions upon such transactions or employment as authorized herein, and by other applicable Tribal law or policy, in light of special circumstances or particular duties. An elected official shall not:
(a) Hold direct or indirect financial or other economic interests, nor engage in such other employment or economic activity, which involve inherent substantial conflict, or the appearance of having such substantial conflict, with responsibilities and duties as elected officials;
(b) Engage in, directly or indirectly, financial or other economic transactions as a result of, or primarily depending upon, information obtained through public office; and
(c) Acquire any economic or other financial property, contractual, or other economic interest at a time when the elected official believes, or has reason to believe, that it will directly and substantially affect, or be so affected by, the elected official’s actions or duties.
