The RITE Richmond team has been inspired by local resident Marion Smith to create a code of Ethics. When Ms. Smith wrote her letter to the editor she made a very valid point when she said:
“I would like to see our city council candidates support the institution of a code of ethics for Richmond’s elected officials and employees. Such a code would remind everyone that the taxpayer is the city employer and that decisions made must be in the best interests of the taxpayer, always.”
RITE Richmond whole heartedly agrees with Ms. Smith and we want to thank her for providing us with such a simple but important direction.
The RITE Richmond City Council and School Trustee candidates wish to announce our code of Ethics and promise to always work and live by these.
RITE Code of Ethics
Put public interest first
Act with integrity, fairness and professionalism
Act with competence and diligence
Act in accordance with the law
Conduct business with objectivity, transparency and accountability
We solemnly declare this is our Code of Ethics.
