Campaign themes


Mullin's website highlights the following campaign themes:[3]

Promote job creation and the innovation economy

  • Excerpt: "Assembly District 22 runs from Genentech in the north to Oracle in the south. With this biotech/high-tech corridor, San Mateo County is the epicenter of the innovation economy that drives California. We must have a tax code and regulatory framework that nurtures the growth of these industries which create high-wage, high-skill jobs."

Enhance education and workforce development systems

  • Excerpt: "Our Pre-14 public education system and CSU and UC systems must be funded adequately to give all of our children the chance to succeed in the new economy."

Encourage environmentally sustainable regional planning

  • Excerpt: "I will work in the Legislature to further incentivize in-fill developments across the state, and ensure that transportation resources properly reward smart land-use decisions on the local level."

Balance the state budget in a fiscally-responsible manner

  • Excerpt: "With the State experiencing chronic deficits, including recent projections of a $16 billion deficit, I support the Governor’s plan on the November ballot to draw more revenues into the budget."

Work in a bi-partisan way to reform state governance

  • Excerpt: "I hope to reach out across the party aisle to establish bi-partisan working relationships, starting with new lawmakers, to restore some consensus building and the policy-making functions of the Legislature."

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 Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to
