FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
ISSUED BY THE LOUISIANA JUDICIAL CAMPAIGN OVERSIGHT COMMITTEE
HARRY S. HARDIN, III, CHAIR
Candidates in the upcoming Spring 2007 judicial elections are urged to contact the Louisiana Judicial Campaign Oversight Committee. The Committee will then send judicial candidates an informational packet, along with a Campaign Conduct Acknowledgment Form, which candidates will be asked to sign and return to the Committee.
The purpose of the Judicial Campaign Oversight Committee is to serve as a resource for judicial candidates, to assist in educating judges and attorneys running for judicial office about ethical campaign conduct, and to help deter unethical judicial campaign conduct. The Committee is authorized to review and investigate complaints which allege violations of certain provisions of Canon 7 of the Louisiana Code of Judicial Conduct. The 15 members of the Committee are appointed by the Supreme Court and include retired judges, lawyers and citizens who are neither lawyers nor judges.
