Issues

Fracking

DelGross, who represents Loveland residents, announced his opposition to the Loveland fracking moratorium initiative, Question 1, which was defeated. At the same time he urged voters to fight against national environmental groups trying to more heavily restrict the energy industry. DelGrosso said, in calls to local voters in Loveland, “Loveland has become the pivotal national battleground in the fight between extreme environmental groups and people like us – people who believe in the need for an “all of the above” energy policy and the need for greater energy independence.” He also said, “This community belongs to us, not environmental interest groups and not liberal activists."[1]

B.J. Nikkel, director of the anti-Question 1 group called Loveland Energy Action Project (LEAP) and former member of the Colorado House of Representatives, said, “Representative DelGrosso has become an important voice for Loveland at the Colorado statehouse and he clearly understands the devastating effects Question 1 would have on our economy and our future."[1]

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 Colorado 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.
