Letter to the Office of Government Ethics
December 2, 2016
I just sent this letter to the Office of Government Ethics:
I am a citizen from Massachusetts. I am writing because I am concerned about the President-elect's conflicts of interest from his business. I am also concerned that your office sent out a tweet storm Wednesday congratulating the President-elect on his announcement that he will leave his business. His commitment to leave his business is vague. It is likely that he will retain a financial interest in his business, and that his children will be running his business. That does not constitute a blind trust. I hope that the Office of Government Ethics intends to more diligently ensure that the President-elect is not subject to conflicts of interest.
Thank you for your time.
I sent it to both their email address (ContactOGE@oge.gov) and to their postal address:
U.S. Office of Government Ethics

Washington, DC 20005
If you agree with the sentiment, I encourage you to do the same. I called the office, but was unable to find someone charged with taking messages from the general public.
