Welcome to the home page of the Public Service Puzzler, a contest brought to you by the Conflicts of Interest Board! Spending just five minutes with the City’s Conflicts of Interest Law could win you prizes! Each month a new puzzle, question, or other activity will be brought to you by the Board’s Training and Education Unit. All you have to do is give five minutes of thoughtful consideration and send in your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org.
One lucky winner each month will receive a gift package from COIB, his or her name, picture and bio on the contest web page, and the same in the following month’s edition of the Board’s monthly newsletter, The Ethical Times.
