Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Nordberg's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Jobs and the Economy

  • Excerpt: "As your State Representative, I will advocate for lower taxes, fight to reduce burdensome forms and regulations for small business, and get government out of the way so businesses can maximize their potential."

Priority Based Budgeting

  • Excerpt: "With so many demands on government services and uncertain revenue streams, the Legislature must do a better job prioritizing the budget. State Agencies and projects should be continually evaluated based on performance."

States’ Rights and the Tenth Amendment

  • Excerpt: "Over the past fifty years, thousands of federal mandates have been passed down to the states. Everything from healthcare to light bulbs, the federal government has increasingly told us how to live our lives. Enough is enough. It’s time for the states to reassert their constitutional authority and restore the balance of power with DC."

Pro-Life

  • Excerpt: "I’m firmly committed to defending the sanctity of life. As your State Representative, I will work to promote policies which provide alternatives to abortion and place value on life at every stage."

Gun Rights and the Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "The Second Amendment, as clearly outlined in the constitution, is a right, not a privilege. As such, I will vehemently defend the right of law abiding citizens to own firearms without interference from the government."

Scorecards

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

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 Colorado 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.
