Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Rendon's campaign website listed the following issues:

  • Safe Neighborhoods
Excerpt: "I believe that we cannot afford any further cuts to our public safety and that we need to work on finding new, steady streams of revenue to adequately fund programs that keep our neighborhoods safe."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "Threats to our natural resources and our environment are a cause for serious concern in California and across the country. I understand the importance of state and local leaders working together to protect the environment."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Millions cannot afford health care or know someone who cannot afford health care. Countless others have been denied health care coverage because of a pre-existing condition."
  • Jobs and Economic Recovery
Excerpt: "I believe that investing in working families through education and effective job training is essential to economic recovery. I will support policies which make certain that well-paying jobs are created and stay in California so that families and small businesses can thrive and prosper. That's why I am supported by local small business leaders and the Los Angeles County Federation of Labor."
  • Education
Excerpt: "As an educator and children’s non-profit director, I know firsthand that a quality education is the foundation for a brighter future for our children. Local communities must have the resources they need to provide the highest quality education possible. I believe that quality schools and colleges are essential for economic recovery and I will fight to decrease college tuition and smaller class sizes for K-12 schools."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in California

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of California scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
