Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Focus on the Future

  • Excerpt: "Whether we are thinking about healthcare, transportation, water, immigration, economic development, education or energy we must consider the impact of today's decisions on those who will follow us."

Education

  • Excerpt: "The best investment in education we can make is ensuring that the youngest of us have access to quality day care, pre-school and early enrichment. While we concentrate on creating accountability in our public school systems the truth is that the biggest 'bang for the buck' will come when we invest in early education for all of our children, rich and poor alike."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Healthcare is a right, not a privilege. We have to ensure that all Arizonans have access to affordable and quality care. We must continue to invest in healthcare infrastructure like our community health centers, graduate medical education and medical support professions."

Immigration

  • Excerpt: "We will need the labor that immigrants provide in increasing numbers in years to come. We must work with the federal government to ensure access to this vital resource of labor in the years ahead. Together we will improve healthcare, law enforcement and business development along the border."

Water

  • Excerpt: "Water is the desert's gold. We must make ensuring our access to water among our highest priorities. We have to improve our conservation, recycling and collection of water if future generations of Arizonans will have a fighting chance at maintaining a vibrant lifestyle."

Bradley's sponsored bills include:

  • HB 2092 - comprehensive transaction privilege tax
  • HB 2107 - temporary soft drink tax
  • HB 2196 - death sentences; moratorium
  • HB 2447 - temporary liquor tax

For a full listed of sponsored bills see the House website.

Scorecards

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 Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
