Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Hall's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Health

  • Excerpt: "I will oppose any efforts to privatize our Medicaid system. An unnecessary for profit middle man will inevitably lead to higher costs and more importantly, greater rationing of care."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "I will continue to fight to ensure our drinking water is safe and that Duke Energy does not pass the cost of cleaning up North Carolina’s coal ash ponds onto their consumers."

Education

  • Excerpt: "As a member of the North Carolina Legislature he will also oppose the further expansion of charter programs that are starving our public schools. Instead of diverting our already scarce tax dollars to benefit the few, we should be concentrating on solutions to make ALL of our schools better!"

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "The best way for us to make sure we remain among the most desirable places for businesses to relocate and to grow is to continue offering a well educated workforce, not by having a third world tax rate."

Choice

  • Excerpt: "As a member of the North Carolina Legislature, Duane will fight to maintain a woman’s Constitutional right to choose."

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.
