Reardon's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Safe and Affordable Housing Options
- Excerpt: "While repealing the ban on inclusionary zoning didn’t succeed in 2013, Jeff hasn’t stopped fighting for a solution. He is currently leading a workgroup to find a solution that will increase the availability of housing for the average family in all parts of the city, whereas currently, affordable options are concentrated in just a few areas."
Educating Our Students Right
- Excerpt: "Jeff has put heavy emphasis on career-technical education (CTE) classes and their extra-curricular counterparts, career-technical student organizations (CTSOs), during his time in the legislature. CTE received almost $10M in funding in 2013, thanks to HB 2912 and SB 498, with a portion earmarked for CTSOs, but Jeff will continue to fight for their success. The return on investment in these programs is too significant too ignore."
Investing in Sustainable Industry
- Excerpt: "Jeff is a strong supporter of these industries and chaired a workgroup which sought to determine how to assign a value on solar energy. In doing so, he brought together a variety of stakeholders ranging from the Sierra Club to the Oregon Department of Energy. Jeff also supported increasing the efficiency of our appliances, to lower our energy demands and provide for greater unity along the west coast, as well as supporting the public-purpose charge on utilities to support energy efficiency in homes."
On his 2012 campaign site, Reardon outlined his campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "The challenges facing Oregon provide us with new opportunities. In the new House District 48, we’ve got the opportunity for a fresh start with a State Representative who has the experience and integrity to help our communities grow and prosper. With 21 years of business experience, 15 years as a teacher, 10 years on the David Douglas School Board, and a Vietnam Veteran, Jeff Reardon has been serving us with commitment and hard work."

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.
