Issues

Campaign themes

Warren's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

Economy

  • Excerpt: "In order to move Rowan County and North Carolina out of this economic disaster, we must have jobs in the private sector! Government can not and should not create jobs but it can and should create conditions favorable for businesses to grow successfully and create more jobs in the private sector."

Immigration

  • Excerpt: "The message must be made that while North Carolina welcomes and supports legal immigration - it is not and will not be a magnet or sanctuary for people ignoring the laws of our country or our state and entering our state illegally."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Our classroom teachers need more help to enhance the learning and the teaching experience for their students and themselves. Better compensation, the elimination of unneccessary testing and the reduction of redundant administrative requirements need to be addressed and resolved to enable our teachers to teach."

No-New-Taxes Pledge

Nine of North Carolina’s 45 incoming freshman state legislators signed a pledge to "oppose and vote against any and all efforts to increase taxes." The pledge was in line with each of their campaign promises to fix the state’s fiscal hole without resorting to tax hikes. At the time they signed the pledge, North Carolina was looking at a budget deficit as high as $4 billion in 2011.

Warren signed the pledge in November 2010.[3]

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.
