Resolution Number SD09.03

Support Clean Campaign Pledge in 2010 Governor’s Race

WHEREAS, California will suffer irreparable harm to our economy, education, and health care systems, environment, infrastructure and more, unless we elect a Democratic governor in 2010; and

WHEREAS, the Republicans are on track to nominate a candidate for governor who is independently wealthy and who will invest tens of millions of dollars in negative attacks on the Democratic nominee; and Democrats cannot afford a negative, bruising primary that leaves our nominee weakened and damaged going into the general election; and

WHEREAS, Chairman John Burton has sent letters to Gubernatorial candidates and will send the same letter to any late entries, asking that they avoid dividing the Party and draining Party resources during the Primary season;

THEREFORE BE IT RESOLVED,
that the California Democratic Party urges Democrats to work together in a way that guarantees a Democratic victory in November by campaigning in an open and fair manner, without resorting to defamatory attacks or unwarranted invasions of personal privacy issues.
