Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Hambrick's campaign website highlights the following issues:[1]

Youth Services

  • Excerpt: "John is already formulating further legislation he plans to introduce in the next session to continue to clamp down on these “worst of the worst” criminals who prey on our innocent youth. While these new law are a great start, for the past few years, the number of children who have fallen through the cracks has increased. They have been poorly served by the very professionals who are supposed to safeguard and care for these most vulnerable members of our community. John will continue the effort during the 2013 session to reform oversight of youth services being offered by state, counties and cities."

Taxes

  • Excerpt: "In the 2013 session, John will continue to press the Legislature to hold the line on spending so that Nevadans can focus on managing their finances without the threat of having to give more and more of their hard earned income to the State. John will also fight for Nevada’s citizens against the calls from many in the Democrat Party to implement a state income tax in Nevada."

Budget

  • Excerpt: "Instead of spending every penny of the projected revenue, John will continue fight for a budget that leaves a cushion. That way, if actual revenues don’t meet expectations, the government will be better able to deal with the shortfall. If actual revenues equal or exceed projections, we can put that money in the bank to cover our State when there are future "rainy days.” This is very similar to how many of you take care of your own finances. There is no reason the Government can’t do that same thing."

Education reform

  • Excerpt: "Only by closely watching the school districts and making sure they are held accountable, not only for spending but also for the results they get from that spending, will we ever see any significant improvement in our graduation rates and test scores."

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 Nevada scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
