Campaign themes


Everett's campaign website listed the following issues:[2]

  • Jobs & Economic Growth
Excerpt: "A low tax environment, a light and predictable regulatory scheme, a legal system that favors small business over the trial lawyers, a state that prohibits forced unionism and doesn't allow union dues to be automatically deducted from worker’s paychecks are all good starting points for reviving Colorado's economy."
  • Education
Excerpt: "Justin is proud to have Former Congressman and State Board of Education Chairman Bob Schaffer, Jefferson County School Board Member Laura Boggs and Education Policy expert Ben Degrow on his team."
  • Immigration
Excerpt: "Some estimates say that illegal aliens cost Colorado as much as $1.5 Billion in State Services. This is money we could use to shore up the State Budget or better yet, return to taxpayers. Aside from challenging Federal Law and trying to get the Feds to enforce Federal Law, there are things we can do at the state level to send a message that illegal immigration will NOT be tolerated."
  • Constitutional Conservatism
Excerpt: "You can call it “Original Intent”, “Framers Intent”, “Strict Constructionist” - Justin is a strict Constitutional Conservative."

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.
