Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Millis' website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Jobs & The Economy

  • Excerpt: "Legislators must improve the environment for job creation and a strong state economy, but they must not directly create jobs by growing government or by handing out direct incentives. Government growth and distributed wealth do not lead to a stable and prosperous economy; history is our witness."

Spending

  • Excerpt: "Low spending is the critical path to a low tax burden. Reducing and cutting spending is necessary."

Term Limits

  • Excerpt: "Legislators at all levels of government need to respect the office they hold. One major form of disrespect is making a career out of an elected position."

Education

  • Excerpt: "While solutions are greatly needed, it is my belief that education policy must be crafted very carefully and with stakeholder input in order to avoid unintended consequences and achieve the desired intent."

Values

  • Excerpt: "I believe that life begins at conception and I will fight for the rights of the unborn. I believe in the Biblical view of marriage between only a man and a woman. I believe in the Church’s role in compassion and the government’s separation from such."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in North Carolina

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 North Carolina scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
