Marchione's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
More Jobs and Opportunities for all New Yorkers
- Excerpt: "Things in New York are getting better – our economy is recovering and unemployment is lower than it was in 2008. But ‘better’ isn’t good enough. We still have much to do before our state is more affordable and our economy more competitive so every New Yorker who wants a job, has one."
A First-Class Education for All Students
- Excerpt: "Every child is unique, every child can learn, and every child deserves a first-class education that properly prepares them to compete, and win, in the 21st century workplace and world. A quality education in a safe, supportive and nurturing school is every child’s right, regardless of their zip code."
Real Tax Relief for Families and Job Creators
- Excerpt: "Families and private sector job creators know best how to spend their hard-earned money, not Albany bureaucrats. Real tax relief puts more money back into the hands of families so they can save, and lets job creators reinvest so they can hire more people."
Honoring New York’s Heroes
- Excerpt: "Our freedom isn’t free: it’s been paid for in the service, sacrifice and blood of New York’s true heroes: the courageous men and women of our armed forces. Words of thanks are appreciated, but we must match our words of praise with programs and policies that support our veterans and help provide more jobs and opportunities when they return back home."
- Excerpt: "Waste, fraud and abuse in the welfare program exploits the generosity of hard-working taxpayers and drains vital resources from a public assistance program intended to help the truly needy. Stopping welfare waste, fraud and abuse will protect taxpayer dollars and ensure that New Yorkers who require a helping hand receive the assistance they need to get back on their feet."
On her campaign website, Marchione highlighted five main issues of her campaign:
- Lowering Taxes: "the goal of anyone serving in the state legislature must be to lower taxes, not just cap them. Kathy supports ending the unfunded mandates that have given us some of the highest property taxes in the United States and making real reforms to large spending programs like Medicaid."
- Letting the Economy Grow: "As senator, Kathy will call for a moratorium on all new regulations and a review of those already in place. Kathy also supports limiting the amount of time that state agencies have to give up-or-down approval on projects."
- Integrity: "Our current state senator has broken a number of campaign promises, flip-flopped on critical issues and continues to mislead voters about his record of raising taxes. As senator, Kathy will be a consistent voice in Albany. You’ll always know where she stands because she has the integrity to tell you."
- Protecting Our Right to Keep and Bear Arms: "Kathy opposes any measure that will compromise our God-given right to keep and bear arms, including microstamping."
- Paying Attention to Smaller Communities: "Every community deserves a senator who will respond to their needs. If elected, Kathy pledges to visit every single city and town in the district at least once during her first term."

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
