Campaign themes

2012

Scarmardo's campaign website highlights the following themes:[1]

  • Bring more jobs to Arizona
Excerpt: "We need to continue using innovative tools to attract capital investment and jobs to our state. This means supporting Science Foundation Arizona, stopping the waste of taxpayer dollars on Governor Brewer’s boondoggle called the AZ Commerce Authority, and using innovative polices to fund job training and targeted incentives to attract more high-tech and high-wage jobs to Arizona."
  • Improve our education system
Excerpt: "Arizona’s education system is at the bottom of the pack, and instead of fixing it Governor Brewer and Republicans made the deepest cuts to education funding in the history of our state. It’s time to get serious about our children’s future."
  • Fix our broken tax system
Excerpt: "Arizona’s tax code is outdated and unfair. Governor Brewer and Republicans asked the voters to tax themselves while refusing to close loopholes that benefit special interests and the rich. We have to fix our broken tax system so it is fair for everyone – families, hard working citizens, and businesses alike."
  • Fight back against the extremism
Excerpt: "Enough is enough. No more attacks on women’s right to privacy and healthcare. No more conspiracy theories. It’s time to take Arizona back from the ideologues and right-wing extremists."
  • Pay off our debt.
Excerpt: "Arizona is drowning in debt. Governor Brewer has only made it worse by selling off the State Capitol and using gimmicks to try and balance the budget. It’s time to stop the madness."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Arizona

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 Arizona 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.
