Did you know that the HRC Candidates signed the League of Women Voters (Rochester Metropolitan Area) 2017 Fair Election Campaign Practices Pledge?
- Kristine M.Demo-Vazquez (Henrietta Town Council)
- John J. Howland (Henrietta Town Council)
All three of the Candidates signed the pledge. See for yourself here.
This pledge is part of the Fair Election Practices Campaign, that was established in the 1970s to promote issue-oriented and civil campaigning among candidates for public office. All candidates have been requested to sign a pledge to that effect. The FEPC Committee was established to hear complaints from those who feel their opponent has violated the pledge. The League of Women Voters/Rochester Metro Area (LWV/RMA) and The Interfaith Alliance of Rochester (TIAR) select the FEPC Committee members. Two members who have been politically involved as Republicans and two as Democrats are selected. In the search for the four members of the committee, a major effort is made to select those individuals who are known for their fairness and sound judgment, and who can be relied upon to give the facts of any case their due consideration and reach conclusions based only on the evidence and not their partisan leanings.
