Issues

Campaign themes

2013

LaRock's campaign website listed the following issues:

  • Taxes

"Dave LaRock will fight to overturn increases in sales taxes, car taxes, hotel/motel taxes and other taxes shepherded through the legislature by Delegate Joe May in his role as the powerful House Transportation Committee Chair."

  • Spending

"Dave LaRock will work to keep Virginia a conservative, low tax state by keeping spending at or below current levels and oppose expansion of welfare giveaway programs that threaten that status."

  • Traffic and Roads

"Northern Virginia should be allowed to keep our tax dollars to be spent locally, rather than funneling them through Richmond to be distributed around the state."

  • Standing Up to Washington

"With President Obama determined to “change” America into a Western European-style Socialist regime, Virginians need strong conservative leaders who will resist the left-wing agenda out of Washington today. Dave LaRock will be that leader."

  • Conservative Values

"It’s time for a delegate who will stand up for what we believe: pro-Life, pro-Second Amendment, and strong for all our conservative values. Dave LaRock will be that leader."

Scorecards

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

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 Virginia 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.
