Supporting Working Families
- Excerpt: "Carla will put working East County families and small businesses ahead of corporate special interests, by reducing taxes for the middle class and cutting tax loopholes for big corporations. And Carla will help create Oregon jobs by making sure local companies get the first crack at all state contracts, so our hard earned tax dollars create jobs here at home."
- Excerpt: "As a mom and member of the Gresham-Barlow School Board for the past 6 years, Carla believes that education is the key to success. That's why she has been a vocal advocate for making sure our teachers get the resources they deserve and the funding goes to support our classrooms, so our schools have the resources they need to keep teachers and reduce class sizes."
- Excerpt: "As Gresham's Police Chief, Carla managed a budget of over $20 million, returning an average of over $638,000 to the city each year. In the legislature, Carla will audit government programs, cutting waste and managing taxpayer dollars wisely."

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.
