Encouraging candidates to run positive campaigns
Hannah-Kate McFadden interviews with WMSV Channel 4 News about 'The Candidate Pledge' and what prompted her to start the initiative.
Negativity is occurring in debates, campaigns, elections, and in our government at all levels. This takes away from the core messages of what candidates and elected officials want to convey to the people they serve. By signing The Candidate Pledge, candidates will show a commitment of adhering to Civility and Respect.
Hi! My name is Hannah-Kate McFadden and I am 13 years old! Find out why I decided to start 'The Candidate Pledge' initiative.

Seeing a need for positive campaigns throughout our local, state, and federal government elections, a passionate 13-year-old Hannah-Kate McFadden came up with 'The Candidate Pledge' so that youth can actively participate in the election process without being exposed to negative and unhealthy campaigns.
We focus on having an initiative that encourages all elections, debates, and elected officials to have positive messages throughout their time of running for office as well as throughout their career as a public servant. Together we can provide the momentum that helps us enact change.
