2012 Campaign themes

Woodings's campaign website listed the following issues:[6]

  • Excellence in Education
Excerpt: "Our communities and businesses deserve citizens with world-class education. We need to work together to develop good solutions to reform Idaho’s education system and make the important investment to support our students, teachers and school districts so that our students can achieve excellence."
  • Smart Energy
Excerpt: "Let’s grow our economy and create good-paying jobs, while preserving the best things in our state for our children and grandchildren. When coupled with our abundant small and large hydropower, development of energy efficiency, solar, geothermal, wind, biomass and biofuels will put Idahoans back to work and clean up our energy portfolio."
  • Fairness for Women
Excerpt: "Women deserve fair opportunities in school and the workplace, and to make their own reproductive decisions. And while we might not all agree on how those decisions should be made or what outcomes should result, I do know that it’s not the role of government to make those important decisions for women. I pledge to be an outspoken and visible advocate for women’s rights, fairness in the workplace, and access to reproductive care."
  • Accountable Leadership
Excerpt: "Any business owner can tell you – you have to have people you can trust minding the store. People who know their customer. People who know the value of a dollar and how to provide the very best service in the most efficient way. And you know what? That’s what good government is too. We deserve to know that our dollar is being invested to provide the biggest benefit for our present and our future, not spent for political reasons."

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 Idaho 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.


In 2013, the Idaho State Legislature was in session from January 7 through April 4.[8]

Legislators are scored on their votes on bills "impacting economic freedom in the state."


In 2012, the Idaho State Legislature was in session from January 9 through March 29.[9]

Legislators are scored on their stances on conservative issues.

Idaho Freedom Index

The Idaho Freedom Foundation, an Idaho-based, nonprofit educational research institute, released its "Idaho Freedom Index" in 2013. The index intended to show how Idaho legislators voted on the principles the Foundation seeks to promote. It measured each state legislator based on two tiers, which include whether legislators voted for or against bills that would create or eliminate government agencies, programs, and regulations, and bills that would impact the free market in a positive or negative way. Scores ranged from the highest possible score for members of the state Senate (194 points) and for members of the state House (180 points). A higher score indicated that the legislator voted more in favor of the values supported by the Foundation.[10] Woodlings received a score of -68 points in the 2013 index, ranking 62nd out of 70 members of the Idaho House of Representatives that were evaluated for the study.
