Issues

Campaign themes

2013

On their shared campaign website, Albano, Matthew Milam, and Sen. Jeff Van Drew listed five major themes of their campaign:[5]

  • Protect South Jersey jobs and grow our state economy
Excerpt: "Bob and Matt are working to help small business owners by eliminating exorbitant fees, cutting red tape and providing other incentives."
  • Cap state spending and relieve the burden on hardworking taxpayers
Excerpt: "Families across New Jersey are tightening their belts to live within their means—and it’s time state government did the same. Bob and Matt support a state spending cap because they don’t want to see our tax dollars going toward wasteful pet projects."
  • Prohibit politicians from accepting gifts from lobbyists
Excerpt: "Bob and Matt are neighbors, community leaders and small business owners—not career politicians. That’s why they support legislation that prohibits politicians from accepting gifts from lobbyists. Working alongside Jeff Van Drew, they are advocating for tougher election laws to keep corruption out of our state government."
  • Bring home South Jersey’s fair share of state resources and money
Excerpt: ."..Bob and Matt are a powerful voice making sure we get our fair share of state resources. They’ve secured funding for tourism, open space preservation and economic development and will continue to advocate for critical projects, such as additional tourism funding to support the local economy in Atlantic, Cape May and Cumberland counties."
  • Improve access to affordable health care and prescription drugs
Excerpt: "Health care is a right, not a privilege—and tough economic times should not mean our children, families and seniors are denied they quality care they deserve.

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 Jersey scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
