Campaign themes

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

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "As your State Representative, one of my top priorities is building and supporting a healthy economy and job market for all Coloradans. While the economic forecast for the first half of 2014 showed that Colorado’s recovery is gaining traction, there is still plenty of room to grow."

Health Care

Education

Environment

Seniors

Scorecards

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

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 Colorado 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.
