Ortiz-Self's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "I will prioritize funding education and reducing class sizes so children can succeed. That means finding new funding and taking a tough look at corporate tax loopholes that cost the state millions a year."
Protecting the Safety Net
- Excerpt: "We need to make sure the resources our families need are available and efficient. We can’t balance budgets on the backs of our most vulnerable and it is important that we find a way of funding our priorities while ensuring seniors, veterans and struggling families get the support they need in this tough economy."
Jobs & the Economy
- Excerpt: "Investments in our local transportation system is a must. Local businesses, big and small have demanded we take action. We need to reduce gridlock and invest in transit to help ease congestion along our major commuter corridors, while also protecting our environment."
- Excerpt: "We need to make sure we are passing common sense laws and that we are investing in our local police and public safety personnel. This means partnering with local law enforcement to ensure they have the funding they need and passing common sense laws to prevent repeat DUI offenders from getting back behind the wheel."

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.
