Voters want to know your commitment to ethics. If elected, voters will rely on you to uphold strong ethical standards that keep government accountable to the people. You should expect to be asked about this issue, and we hope you will demonstrate your commitment to principled, ethical leadership. This pledge is one way to do so.

Common Cause is nonpartisan. We are sending this pledge to all Oregon candidates for U.S. Congress and Secretary of State, so Oregonians can know each candidate’s stand on this priority concern. Your response (or lack thereof) will be publicized on this website starting on March 25. We’ll also publicize responses by alerting our supporters and doing media outreach. You can contact us at with any questions or concerns.
