Campaign themes

2014

Strohm's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

The Government Closest to you Governs Best…Economies & Jobs

  • Excerpt: "As part of helping our economy to grow and to encourage innovation and entrepreneurism, I will support efforts to ease the burden on these enterprising individuals, because these businesses are the engine of economic development in our communities."

Shall Not be Infringed…Support the Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I am a member of the NRA, and I will support legislation that respects and protects second amendment principles. I will oppose any effort, such as limiting ammunition sales or other free market restrictions, to circumvent that right."

Communities…..Local Control

  • Excerpt: "I will support legislation that reduces the regulatory burden on communities and gives them creative solutions to funding problems."

Education Must be a Priority

  • Excerpt: "In any approach to education, I will support legislation that places control in the hands of parents and teachers rather than bureaucrats and the Federal Government."

Live Within our Means – Budget

  • Excerpt: "I will support legislation that encourages saving, cuts to unnecessary programs or pet projects, and deals with subsidies, incentives and rebates that allow government to choose winners and losers."

Scorecards

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

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 Oklahoma 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.
