Issues


Hannon discusses the budget[1]

2010

Hannon's Newsday profile highlighted the following as his priorities: "Hannon said unchecked borrowing has brought “the state of New York right onto the cliff of fiscal peril.” He cited the state’s lack of “an established plan for distributing the education monies” as an example of New York’s need for greater fiscal controls. The state’s budget fails to address core services, and also doesn’t include a viable job growth plan, he said. Hannon opposed the state MTA payroll tax, which he cited as “one of the most devious taxes because it hits everybody, every day, in every walk of life.” He said the MTA is in need of audits. Hannon said the MTA could raise more revenue by charging drivers at the East River bridge crossings, but he is “not so sure the entryways are prepared for it” yet. He said one of the state’s major challenges in the coming year will be implementing new federal healthcare laws."[2]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New York

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 New York 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.
