Government and Ethics

The Reform Party believes:

The Reform Party believes that democracy requires all levels of government to adhere to ethical standards. An office-holder’s influence should be solely for the benefit of their constituents and in service to their oath to the US Constitution.

Public servants, elected and appointed, will find themselves privy to non-public information. Public servants must not be allowed to take measures to profit from this information. Likewise, non-government entities[1] must not inappropriately benefit from their relationship with public officials.

Activities that yield an unexplained advantage to any party, in government or not, must be examined for ethical breaches. Ethical areas to be monitored include:

  • Lobbying Irregularities
  • Campaign Fundraising
  • Committee Assignments
    • Political affiliation as a consideration
    • Conflicts of interest
  • Office-holder Investment Transparency and Limitations
  • Office-holder Benefits, Including Compensation and Retirement

The Reform Party seeks the enforcement of laws and regulations (with new legislation as needed) that address the above concerns.
