Open and Honest Government

Everyone should have the opportunity to be heard by their elected officials. Our leaders must listen carefully and respectfully to all residents of Frederick County and to be open to their opinions when making decisions.


Elected officials should operate in an open, transparent manner, should adhere to the highest ethical standards, and should work to ensure that all their colleagues do the same. Councilmembers should follow standards of conduct and civility that make decision making more fruitful.
