Ethics in Government

No Gifts List

I pledge that as a candidate for office and as an office holder – I will not accept “gifts,” or “things of value” as defined in Title 257, Chapter 1, section 1-2 Definition 1 from registered lobbyists.

I will allow Common Cause Oklahoma, a nonpartisan, good government group to post my name on a “No Gifts List,” on Common Cause Oklahoma’s website. My name on this list provides a way by which I and lobbyists can establish a public relationship based on professionalism and end constituent perceptions that Oklahoma public officials and lobbyists engage in an inappropriate game of quid pro-quo. By allowing Common Cause Oklahoma to post my name to the “No Gifts List,” I’m showing my commitment to good government and my high concern for ethics.
