Campaign themes

2011

Treat's 2011 special election campaign highlighted the following campaign themes:

"The Greg Treat Plan:"

  • "Real Reform to fight against ever-increasing property taxes."
  • "Creating the most business-friendly environment in Oklahoma. We must make sure Edmond and Oklahoma City remain the best place to expand, locate or relocate a business."
  • "Fighting back against any federal encroachment into powers reserved in the US Constitution for the State Government, or the People."
  • "Preserving and encouraging free-market principles in the delivery of our health care system. I oppose the federal takeover of our health care system."
  • "Protecting the sanctity of life and improving our foster care system as an alternative to abortion."
  • "Creating measurable objectives to gauge the effectiveness of government programs. This will help us to find the programs that are working and eliminate wasteful or unnecessary programs."
  • "Implementing incentives to encourage state agencies to cut spending."
  • "Improving education by empowering classroom teachers to teach their subject matter – not just to teach solely for testing."
  • "Reducing government spending. It is not prudent to increase the size and scope of government simply because of a temporary increase in state revenues."
  • "Fight, at every turn, against government taking a more active role in raising our children. Government is not the solution – all too often it is the problem."
  • "Above all, as your state senator I will support conservative, fiscally-responsible policies at the Capitol that will ensure our state is the best place to live, work and raise a family!"

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