(http://www.faircampaignpractices.org/index.html) revised July 7, 2015

In 1991 the League of Women Voters of Westchester established the Westchester County Fair Campaign Practices Committee (the Committee) as a separate and independent entity. The purpose of the Committee is to promote a climate in which candidates conduct honest, fair and open campaigns, refraining from dishonest and defamatory attacks and without distorting the facts.

The League plays no role in the Committee's deliberations or decisions but does provide support services and administers the funding. Underwriting for this project was made possible by a grant from the Westchester Community Foundation, a non-profit community endowment for the benefit of Westchester County.

The Committee is composed of community leaders who serve as unpaid volunteers.  They represent a wide range of public interests and are recognized as being independent and fair minded. Members are chosen by representatives from the Committee and the League of Women Voters of Westchester. In addition, members representing recognized political parties serve ex-officio without vote; they contribute political perspective and experience to the discussion. Westchester residents are encouraged to send the Committee resumes of those they believe would be appropriate.
