  • Excerpt: "As someone who has worked in the agricultural industry and education in the state for most of my adult life, the issues and problems of farmers and families are very important. New Mexico has some of the richest histories and traditions and we must constantly strive to preserve our way of life. We need to support agriculture, family and education to allow our state and its citizens to reach their full potential without compromising our heritage and values. We must find ways to create good-paying jobs to keep our children in state. We must protect water rights for our citizens."

Scorecards

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 New Mexico scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
