WCC School Board Fair Campaign Practices 


Richmond, Calif.
– We have seen months of negative campaigning in the West Contra Costa School Board race, including character defamation, whispering campaigns, and scurrilous attacks. The Contra Costa County Code of Fair Campaign Practices lists a number of practices to which candidates and campaigns should subscribe. Paragraph six of the Code of Fair Campaign Practices states: 

                     “I SHALL IMMEDIATELY AND PUBLICLY REPUDIATE support deriving from

                     an individual or group which resorts, on behalf of my candidacy or in opposition
                     to that of my opponent, to the methods and tactics which I condemn. I shall accept
                     responsibility to take firm action against any subordinate who violates any provision
                     of this code or laws governing elections.”



I fully subscribe to the Contra Costa County Code of Fair Campaign Practices and I repudiate all negative campaign tactics and communications, regardless of whether verbal, electronic, or printed.


We should be focused on the issues effecting our community and schools. 

                                                                                                                               – Tom Panas
