By submitting this electronic application, I pledge that, if appointed I agree by my signature below that, if appointed, I pledge to comply with the following ethics guidelines for advisory boards and commissions as adopted by the Wake County Board of Commissioners.

 I. Declaration of Policy

The proper operation of democratic government requires that public officials and employees be independent, impartial and responsible to the people; that governmental decisions and policy be made in proper channels of the governmental structure; that public office not be used for personal gain; and that the public have confidence in the integrity of its government.

In recognition of these goals, a Code of Ethics for County officials is hereby adopted. The purpose of this policy is to establish guidelines for ethical standards of conduct for all such officials by setting forth those acts or actions that are compatible with the best interests of the County.

II. Applicability of Ethics Policy

The provisions of this policy shall apply to all elected and appointed County officials, members of County boards and commissions appointed by the County commissioners, and other County employees.

II. Financial and Personal Disclosure

Any County official or employee who must officially consider any public matter involving his financial or personal interests, or those of his immediate family, shall first publicly disclose the nature and extent of such interest and shall abstain from acting thereon unless provisions of state law require otherwise.

III. Gifts and Favors

No official or employee shall knowingly accept any gift, whether in the form of money, thing, favor, loan or promise, when it could reasonably be inferred that the gift was intended to influence or reward an official action on his part. Gifts, meals, other favors of an incidental nature and of minor value, or legitimate political contributions shall not be included in this policy.

IV. Appointment, Employment, or Contract Award of Relatives or
Business Partners

Public officials of the appointing authority must disclose on the public record any person of their immediate family related by blood or marriage, or business interest who is being considered for appointment, employment or contract award by that authority.

Immediate family related by blood and marriage are to include: spouse, child, parents, brothers, sisters, grandparents, grandchildren, step-, and in-law relationships for preceding categories.
