Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Della Rosa's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Constitutional Conservative

  • Excerpt: "It is imperative that we have a state legislature that will stand up and protect the constitutional rights of the people of Arkansas. Jana Della Rosa will stand firm to defend the rights of all Arkansans against any federal or state infringement."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Jana Della Rosa will work to lower the tax burden on Arkansas families and small businesses and will support legislation that encourages job creation, investment, and economic development. She will fight to make government more efficient, transparent, and accountable to the people it serves."

Job Creation

  • Excerpt: "The first thing that must happen for job creation is for the government to get out of the way. Letting the free market grow and prosper on its own accord has proven time and again to be the best solution. Bailouts, stimulus, and temporary, government-created jobs don’t work and only put our nation further in debt."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Jana will work to return decision-making power to the parents who know best the individual needs of their children and will push back against federal propaganda driving its way into our schools."

The 2nd Amendment

  • Excerpt: " Jana will strongly defend your right to keep and bear arms and will fight against any effort to infringe upon that right."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Arkansas

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.
