Village of Jackson Municipal Code Sec. 2-362. - Declaration of Ethics Policy.
The proper operation of democratic government requires that public officials and employees be independent, impartial, and responsible to the people; that government decisions and policy be made in proper channels of the governmental structure; that public office not be used for personal gain; and that the public have confidence in the integrity of its government. In recognition of these goals, there is hereby established a code of ethics for all village officials and employees, whether elected or appointed, paid or unpaid, including members of boards, committees, and commissions of the village as well as any individuals who are candidates for elective office as soon as such individuals file nomination papers with the village.
