County offices should not promote candidates

I have received a letter from Jarret P. Heil on Thursday May 30, 2024 asking my household to consider voting for a candidate he is supporting. Prior to opening the letter, the envelope looked like an official county business letter. I have no problem with Mr. Heil personally supporting a candidate, but the envelope’s return address was from Jarret Heil, Marshall County Supervisor. I truly believe no elected official should in any way use their office to promote a candidate. This may not be legal as stated in the Iowa State Ethics Commission section 23[b][2].
