We will conduct our campaign in line with the following principles:
- Politics is a contest of ideas. There is no room in campaigns for personal attacks on a person’s character or personal relationships. We will never attack our opponents’ integrity or good faith.
- Matters of public record are subject to investigation and evaluation. As citizens, we believe that we share the responsibility to offer a fair and reasonable estimation of the actions and/or inactions of our public officials. We will engage in honest and open critique of decisions of record wherever it is deemed appropriate.
- People take precedence over party. We believe that politics should be generous enough to allow for friends to compete for the same elected office and retain good will. We will continue to pursue friendship with any opponent as we engage each other in healthy, informed, and respectful debate about the issues at hand.
