Statement of Policy
The use of State agency stationery, accompanied by the typed words "personal and unofficial", constitutes an unacceptable contradiction in the message transmitted. As a matter of policy, State agency stationery should be utilized only for official governmental business. If a communication is "personal and unofficial" it has no business being sent on agency stationery. Sending such communications on agency stationery could give the appearance of an inappropriate attempt to utilize the influence of an individual's office for a private purpose.
