G.05 Staff Participation In Political Activities - April 2001 Revision

Note: This policy was reviewed and revised in July 2011. We provide it here for historic purposes only. Please refer to the current policy.

Staff members of Albuquerque Public Schools may hold public offices regardless of the relationship between the public office and the interests of Albuquerque Public Schools.

The district seeks to assist employees/public officials in avoiding conflicts between the interests of the Albuquerque Public Schools and the interests of the public official's constituents. An employee of Albuquerque Public Schools who is a public official, acting in his or her capacity, may speak, act, debate and vote according to his or her convictions, without undue influence by the Board or by the Superintendent. The district and employees who hold public office will observe compliance with laws, especially those relating to Article Nine, Section Fourteen (the anti-donation clause) of the Constitution of the State of New Mexico.
