AUMA Pledge

What is the AUMA Pledge?

The Pledge is a voluntary commitment a candidate can make to support democratic local elections as they carry out their campaigns to:

  • Keep local elections local by focusing their campaigns on issues that municipal elected officials can influence.

  • Maintain independence and non-partisanship by rejecting any endorsements which would undermine their accountability to municipal residents or the autonomy of the municipality.

  • Demonstrate transparency by sharing their vision for the municipality and providing pre-election disclosure of campaign contributions and spending.

  • Engage in respectful behaviour by sharing their perspective, while respecting and seeking to understand differences.
