CODE OF FAIR CAMPAIGN PRACTICES
[Text not available]
There are basic principles of decency, honesty and fair play which every candidate for public office in the State of Nevada has a moral obligation to observe and uphold, in order that, after vigorously contested but fairly conducted campaigns, the voters may exercise their constitutional right to vote for the candidate of their choice and that the will of the people may be fully and clearly expressed on the issues.
THEREFORE:

1.

I will conduct my campaign openly and publicly and limit attacks against my opponent to legitimate challenges to my opponent’s voting record or qualifications for office.

2.

I will not use character defamation or other false attacks on a candidate’s personal or family life.

3.

I will not use campaign material which misrepresents, distorts or otherwise falsifies the facts, nor will I use malicious or unfounded accusations which are intended to create or exploit doubts, without justification, about the personal integrity of my opposition.

4.

I will not condone any dishonest or unethical practice which undermines the American system of free elections or impedes or prevents the full and free expression of the will of the voters.
I, the undersigned, as a candidate for election to public office in the State of Nevada, hereby voluntarily pledge myself to conduct my campaign in accordance with the principles and practices set forth in this Code.
