Campion is passionate about improving education so our young people are prepared to be active participants in our democracy and can be prepared to find work that is meaningful to both them and society. Campion is particularly proud of the support he gave to last year’s principal mentoring legislation, his support for lifting pre-K caps which allow more prekindergarten (pre-K) children to enroll in pre-K education programs, as well as his unwavering support of the teaching profession; most recently evident in his teacher mentoring bill. Additionally, Campion is deeply committed to environmental conservation, healthcare reform, and economic development.

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