Healey's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
JOBS, JOBS, JOBS
- Excerpt: "One way to increase the number of jobs available is through economic diversification. Nevada must attract new industries such as manufacturing, information technology and renewable energy. These industries bring thousands of long term sustainable jobs. I will also work to find ways to fund road and building projects such as Interstate 11 which would create thousands of jobs while creating a roadway that will also increase business opportunities."
EDUCATION — Children are our future
- Excerpt: "Improving funding and accountability are important factors needed to improve the Education System in Nevada. Adopting the “Common Core Standards” will ensure that students’ transition between schools will not become a detriment to the ability for them to keep up. This will help more of our students stay on track and in school."
Veterans – They fight for our rights, I will fight for theirs!
- Excerpt: "As your Assemblyman, I will fight hard to ensure that rights and services are available for our Veterans."
Seniors – Keeping the gold in “Golden Years”
- Excerpt: "Our valley is a very attractive place for seniors to enjoy their retirement. We have outstanding Senior Communities and I am committed to work closely with our seniors to ensure that we can continue to provide a quality way of retirement and attract thousands more to retire in our beautiful state."
Foreclosures – Stop the bleeding
- Excerpt: "As a Legislator I will be focused on ways to continue to hold financial institutions accountable and responsible. We must create laws to protect home buyers from ever being faced with the kind of crisis so many of my constituents are currently enduring. I will work with our Federal Representatives in pushing for solutions and options for homeowners that are currently in trouble."
Healey's website highlighted campaign themes including economic diversification, public works, Common Core standards for schools, veterans' affairs, quality of life for seniors, and "laws to protect home buyers from ever being faced with [foreclosure]...."

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
