It is the policy of the City Council to discourage acceptance of gifts and campaign contributions to sitting members of the City Council that may influence their official decisions. The policy encourages members of the City Council to sign a voluntary pledge agreeing not to accept such campaign contributions from developers, contractors with the city or individuals seeking employment with the city. It also requests voluntary disclosure of smaller gifts and contributions from such parties prior to voting on matters affecting them than is now required by the Political Reform Act. Those members of the City Council who have agreed to accept the pledge and requested their names be added to pledge list are as follows:

  • Mayor Bill Zimmerman
