National Political Awareness Test

Rumpf's answers to the New Jersey State Legislative Election 2007 National Political Awareness Test are available. In the test, he lists his top priorities:

We are strongly committed to reforming New Jersey's system of property taxation. One of the most direct methods toward achieving this goal would be to reduce state spending and take a more fiscally responsible approach to the use of taxpayer dollars. Furthermore, stronger ethic reform measures must be instituted such as closing loopholes within existing law to end the practice of using government contracts to obtain campaign contributions, more commonly known as "pay-to-play." Additionally, stronger sentences must be established for corrupt politicians who misplace the public trust.[3]

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.
