Campaign themes


Zlotnik's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Economic Development

  • Excerpt: "I would work to maintain that the local administration has every tool in the state arsenal to put economic development back on track in the area."


  • Excerpt: "We don’t want to squeeze the budgets of constituents who wish to buy food or clothes, and to subsequently cause a constriction of the flow of money in the area. We want residents buying locally, and we want others to come to the area to buy as well, and this can only be done by incentivizing new business, as well as incentivizing spending through a lower sales tax."


  • Excerpt: "I will make sure to bring in State and Federal money to the district to ensure that this continues well into the future."

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 Massachusetts scorecards, email suggestions to
