Beth Farnham



What is one life experience you have that voters should know about?

As a credit analyst, I spoke with borrowers around the country, learned their financial situations, and made credit decisions to improve their outcomes.

What sets you apart from other candidates?

I am outgoing, curious, and informative. Frequently interested in a wide variety of issues that affect everyday Americans, I research these topics like our Democracy, Reproductive Freedom, Gun Safety, Public Education, Universal Healthcare, and Immigration Reform extensively.

How do you plan to work across ideological lines to achieve shared goals?

I remember that the common ground we have is our Constitutional Values. These are the ideas between the commas of the Preamble to the Constitution - We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity. These values are what we elect government officials to use to write and enforce our laws. We the People - our government starts from the bottom up, not the top down. Elected leaders serve us, not the other way around. A more perfect union - while we may differ on some things, we are ultimately trying to unite, not divide ourselves further. Establish Justice - we hold our citizens, including elected leaders, accountable for their crimes. Insure domestic tranquility - we seek peaceful transfers of power, not insurrections. Provide for the common defense - we support our Allies in their quest for Democracy and peace. Promote the general welfare - we desire laws that improve our lives, like the America Rescue Plan, the Infrastructure Investments and Jobs Act, and the Inflation Reduction Act.

What would be your top three policy priorities in office?

Protect Our Democracy and enshrine into law Reproductive Freedom and Gun Safety.

The Committee of Seventy has partnered with the Carter Center to promote the Candidate Principles for Trusted Elections ( to improve the voting process, encourage honest leadership, and promote civic engagement. Do you support the Candidate Principles? 

Absolutely. I stand by the statement below from Principled Candidates' website.

As a candidate, I am guided by the following principles:
Honest Process
Cooperate with election officials, adhere to rules and regulations, and refrain from knowingly propagating falsehoods about the electoral process.

Civil Campaign
Encourage a peaceful election atmosphere during the pre-election, polling, counting, and post-election periods. Denounce any attempt to intimidate, harass, threaten or incite violence against opponents, their supporters, and election workers.

Secure Voting
Respect voters' freedom to exercise their lawful rights to register and vote, free from interference, obstruction, or intimidation.

Responsible Oversight
Encourage political parties and others to train poll-watchers on the election process and appropriate roles and behaviors, responsibilities, and obligations.

Trusted Outcomes
Make claims of election irregularities in accordance with the law and acknowledge the legitimacy of the outcomes after the results have been certified and all contestations decided.
