- Must NOT serve the whims of special interests (i.e., developers, attorneys, realtors) or regurgitate partisan talking points;

- Must NOT make back room deals with colleagues, special interests, the County Manager, or the County Attorney and be committed to transparency, accountability, and following Sunshine Laws.
