Issues

Campaign themes

2012

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

Education

  • Excerpt:"My statewide goal is learned children, not a healthy bureaucracy or comfortable institution. I promise to work for exceptionalism. That is my goal, and I am committed to the battle."

Government & Business

  • Excerpt:"Ed believes that government is frequently out of touch with the conservative principles of Missouri. He knows that our communities will grow and flourish when the farmer and small business person are free to operate without unreasonable restrictions."

Illegal Immigration

  • Excerpt:"Ed Emery will serve you by standing for “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” voting by principle, rather than circumstance. He will work with others who are like-minded to restore government that facilitates rather than opposes individual character, initiative, and innovation."

Jobs & Prosperity

  • Excerpt:"Legislation to eliminate government-mandated union membership so Missouri can compete with neighboring right-to-work states"

Sanctity of Life

  • Excerpt:"Sanctity of life is not just opposition to abortion and euthanasia: It is a measure of the value of a human life. Nothing is more sacred or worthy of protection than life from conception to the grave."

Scorecards

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

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 Missouri 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.
