Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Lalor's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Job Creation

  • Excerpt: "New York State has one of the worst business climates in the entire country. My central focus in Albany will be to make New York a more business-friendly state and create jobs and opportunities for New York workers and entrepreneurs. Like my father and grandparents before me, I started a small business and know that taxes and bureaucrats do not create jobs—they kill jobs."

Tax Relief

  • Excerpt: "I understand that to grow the New York economy people must be able to keep more of their own money and government must get smaller and more efficient."

Reform Albany

  • Excerpt: "Too many elected officials spend taxpayer money for their own benefit. Both Republicans and Democrats tax hard working citizens to subsidize the politically connected. This pervasive practice is a prime cause of our state’s economic and ethics crisis and must be ended immediately."

Culture & Liberty

  • Excerpt: "I understand how precious life is and as a result I am pro-life."
  • Excerpt: "Marriage is an institution that has served civilization well for all of recorded human history. We should not fundamentally alter the definition of this institution merely because well-funded, politically correct special interest groups led by self-important celebrities want to do so. I support traditional marriage."
  • Excerpt: "I believe in the Right to Bear Arms and understand that The Second Amendment to the US Constitution protects an individual right to possess a firearm."

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.
