Code Of Ethics

The Citizens of El Cajon call upon the City to adopt a Code of Ethics and Conduct for elected officials and members of appointed boards, commissions, and committees to assure public confidence in the integrity of local government elected and appointed officials.



Stewardship of Public Interest

Recognizing their stewardship of the public interest must be their primary concern, Public Officials will work for the common good of the people of El Cajon  and not for any private or personal interest, continually guiding the city to its greatest potential.  They will assure fair and equal treatment of all persons, claims, transactions.


above reproach

The professional and personal conduct of Public Officials must be above reproach, within City, professional, and personal activity, and avoid even the appearance of impropriety.  Public Officials shall refrain from abusive conduct, personal charges, or verbal attacks upon the character or motives of other Public Officials and community members.


Honor. Integrity. Wisdom.

Comply with both the letter and spirit of the laws; Are independent, impartial and fair in their judgment and actions; Conduct public deliberations and processes openly, unless required by law to be confidential, in an atmosphere of respect and civility. Represent the City of El Cajon with honor, integrity and wisdom


Sign the Petition

By Signing this petition...

You agree with the common sense position that local government officials should have to agree to, and abide by a simple statement of Ethics. You also agree that, based on the evidence, Ben Kalasho has clearly violated even the most liberal standards of Ethical behavior for elected officials.
