Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Ladyman's website emphasized the following campaign themes:[2]

  • I will promote Northeast Arkansas, Craighead County and Jonesboro throughout the state. Craighhead County is one of the stronger economic regions of the state and our story needs to be told.
  • I choose to be positive and work to improve conditions and not be negative or pessimistic on the issues.
  • I am Pro-life and opposed to abortion.
  • I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. I oppose gay marriage.
  • I oppose the Affordable Care Act (Obamacare) and the Private Option. I think there are better solutions to issues confronting our health care system.
  • I am opposed to new taxes and prefer to let people invest their money in our communities the way they wish.
  • I believe local control of government is much better that a one plan fits all government in Little Rock and Washington DC.
  • I support our military and our veterans. My father served in World War II and my brother served in Vietnam. I believe we should take care of our military who fought to obtain and protect our freedom.
  • I am for creating good paying jobs in Northeast Arkansas that will be there for our children and grandchildren. This can be done by reducing the regulatory burden on large and small businesses and providing infrastructure to all businesses to prosper.[3]

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 Arkansas 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.
