Campaign themes


Lucas' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Spark Economic Growth to Create Jobs

  • Excerpt: "We must make Pennsylvania’s business tax and regulatory structure competitive with other states to stop employers from leaving and encourage new employers to settle here. This is why I’ve voted for bills like eliminating the inheritance tax on small businesses and supported start-up dedication to help new businesses grow."

Quality Education to Prepare Our Workforce for the Future

  • Excerpt: "I will focus money on the classroom and on students to ensure a quality education for our children while making certain that teachers have the tools they need to succeed. My wife and I chose to send our son Zach to local public schools and to a state university."

Secure Tomorrow’s Jobs...Today

  • Excerpt: "One of my major priorities in Harrisburg has been supporting small businesses and entrepreneurs who drive our economy. That’s why I’ve voted to invest in startup businesses and give them a tax deduction to get off the ground floor to have a chance on being successful."

Rein in Out-of-Control Government Spending

  • Excerpt: "I promise to support only real balanced state budgets to bring fiscal sanity to the budget process in Harrisburg. I voted for an on time budget that didn’t increase taxes and reduced debt in our state. I will continue my promise of holding the line on taxes and spending in Harrisburg."

Reform Harrisburg

  • Excerpt: "As a State Representative, I have been fighting for real reform by standing up to the special interests and career politicians. I voted to reduce the size of the legislature so tax dollars aren’t spent on more expensive state offices/staff but invested back into the communities we are supposed to represent. I’ve kept my promise to voters who elected me to the State House to drive my own car. I’ve chosen pay to pay for a portion of my health care just like we all do. I’m representing my constituents 100% of the time and will not hold another job so I keep my time and focus solely on those I represent."

Pro-life and Strong supporter of the Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "I am pro-life and a strong supporter of the Second Amendment. In Harrisburg, I will stand up to the politicians – including those of my own party – who would try to weaken our state’s abortion laws or take away the rights of gun owners."

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 Pennsylvania scorecards, email suggestions to
