Issues

Campaign themes

2014

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

Economic Prosperity

  • Excerpt: "In order for our state government to fix the economy, they first must realize that government policy and sound economics go hand in hand. We must put a stop to the practice of passing one burdensome regulation after another in Charleston and end the high taxation binge."

Education

  • Excerpt: "It is true that our schools need funding, but we must reform the system and stop just throwing money at the problem. It is time that our government listens to teachers and parents and step out of the way as recommended and let our teachers do what they do best, teach. We need more local and parental control in education and we must eliminate bureaucracy that our schools find to be a nuisance."

Vote Swapping

  • Excerpt: "This act is one I will never take part in. Leaving principle and integrity behind for political expediency is something I find to be disgraceful. This is precisely the reason West Virginians now feel that the political process in Charleston has been corrupted. West Virginia needs legislators who stand firm to principles and lead with integrity."

Life

  • Excerpt: "Children are a gift from our Creator and the right to life should never be infringed upon by politicians. As your delegate, I will strongly support stripping away tax-payer funding for abortion procedures."

Second Amendment

  • Excerpt: "We need legislators who protect our rights, not limit them. I pledge to oppose any and all legislation limiting our gun rights. You have my word."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in West Virginia

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 West Virginia 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.
