I have read and agree to THURSTON COUNTY DEMOCRATS’  FAIR CAMPAIGN PRACTICES PRINCIPLES  and Parctices: The purpose for having a Code of Fair Campaign Practice is to encourage substantive  issues----oriented electoral campaigns in Thurston County that will educate the voter  and help to improve the quality of dialogue about public policy.  ▪ Electoral campaigns in Thurston County and throughout the state and nation are  subjected to unacceptable levels of negativism, attack advertising (that includes social  media attacks by campaign volunteers), and other negative practices, which demean  representative democracy. ▪ Negative campaigns are directly related to the cynicism, alienation, and decreasing  participation rates among American voters. We all have a stake in positive electoral  processes, the centerpiece of a civil society.  ▪ Each candidate is responsible for fair and ethical practices by or on behalf of her/his  campaign. ▪ Five core values are fundamental to our society and are widely shared throughout  Thurston County: honesty, respect, responsibility, fairness and compassion.  Honesty and Fairness: Candidates shall emphasize their views, beliefs, and experiences. Candidates are committed  to an open and public discussion of issues and to presenting their record and their opponents’  records truthfully and with sincerity and frankness. Candidates shall not use or knowingly  agree to let campaign surrogates use subtle deceptions, half-truths, fasciations, or such  practices as push polling. Factual claims made by campaign will be supported by publicly  available documents provided by their campaign.  Respect:  Candidates shall avoid demeaning references to their opponent and demeaning visual images  of their opponent. Candidates shall respect their opponent. Candidates shall not use or  knowingly allow to be used personal attacks, innuendo, or stereotyping. 6 Responsibility:  Candidates shall ensure that their campaigns surrogates will observe these principles of fair  campaign practices. Candidates shall take full responsibility and be fully accountable for all  advertising created or used on their behalf by staff and surrogates. Candidates shall conduct  their campaign openly and publicly, discussing the issues as they see them, presenting their  record and policies with sincerity and frankness, and criticizing without fear and without malice  the record and policies of their opponents and hers or his political party that merit such  criticism. Candidates will not condone third---party advertising that does not meet the principles  contained in this document. If such practices are used by third parties without their approval,  the candidate shall repudiate them immediately and publicly upon their knowledge of the  occurrence.  Compassion:  In the conduct of their candidacy, they shall show compassion at all times for their opponent.  Candidates shall remember that the campaign process is fundamental to representative  democracy and that their behavior in the campaign affects the integrity of our society. 7 CODE OF FAIR CAMPAIGN PRACTICES There are basic principles of honesty, fairness, respect, responsibility and compassion which every  candidate for public office in Thurston County, Washington State, and our nation has a moral obligation  to observe and uphold in order that, after vigorously contested but fairly conducted campaigns,  Thurston County citizens may exercise their constitutional right to a free and unrestrained (unrestricted)  choice and the will of the voters may be fully and clearly expressed in issues.  Therefore:  I shall conduct my campaign openly and publicly, discussing the issues as I see them, presenting my  record and policies with sincerity and frankness, and coitizing without fear or malice of favor the record  and policies of my opponents or political parties that merit this criticism.  I shall not use or knowingly permit the use of character defamation, whispering campaign, libel, slander,  or scurrilous attacks on any candidate or hers/his personal or family life.  I shall not use or knowingly permit any appeal to negative prejudice based on a candidates race,  religious creed, national origin, ancestry, physical disability, mental disability, medical condition, marital  status, age, sexual orientation, sex including gender identity, or association with another person who  has any of the actual or perceived characteristics. I shall not use or knowingly permit any dishonest or  unethical practice that tends to corrupt or undermine our American system of free elections, or that  hampers or prevents the full and free expression of the will of the voters including acts intended to  hinder or prevent any eligible person from registering to vote, enrolling to vote, or voting.  I shall not coerce election help or campaign contributions for myself or for any other candidate from my  employees.  I shall immediately and publicly repudiate support deriving from any individual or group that resorts, on  behalf of my candidacy or in opposition to that of my opponent, to the methods and tactics that I  condemn. I shall accept responsibility to take firm action against any subordinate who violates any  provision of this code or the laws governing elections.  I shall defend and uphold the right of every qualified American voter to full and equal participation in the  electoral process. I, the undersigned candidate for election of public office in Washington State,  including Thurston County, hereby voluntarily endorse, subscribe to, and solemnly pledge myself to  conduct my campaign in accordance with the Thurston County Democrats’ Fair Campaign Practices  and Principles and the Code of Fair Campaign Practices.
