Campaign themes


Mayes' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Deliver High Performance Government

  • Excerpt: "Chad believes state government can deliver stronger transparency and accountability to taxpayers through innovations such as performance based budgeting and measures like Lean Six Sigma that focus on efficiency."

Fix Failing Schools

  • Excerpt: "California schools can regain their position as #1 again by giving parents a greater role and responsibility in their child’s education, returning local control to school boards, ensuring our schools are safe, and extending collegiate level choice to college bound students and a quality career technology courses that prepare graduates to compete for the best jobs."

Build a New Jobs Climate

  • Excerpt: "Texas Governor Rick Perry’s efforts to lure companies and jobs from California by offering economic incentives are a direct result of California having the highest taxes in the nation. We need to reform California’s job killing regulations and reduce the tax burden to not only keep the jobs we have but to expand and strengthen our economy."

Step up the Fight for Local Control

  • Excerpt: "Instead of returning resources to cities and counties for schools, public safety and badly needed infrastructure repairs, political choices have caused deep damage to local communities. As an experienced former councilman and mayor, Chad will champion greater local control and stewardship of every tax dollar."

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 California scorecards, email suggestions to
