Campaign themes


Saine's campaign website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

  • Let economy grow
Excerpt: "Innovation and job-growth is created through market-based solutions not government bureaucracies. By lowering individual and business taxes, we can put more money back into the pockets of the people."
  • Promote oil, gas and coal
Excerpt: "Colorado’s booming energy economy has been halted by burdensome energy rules and regulations. I will work to remove those burdens and get employees in the energy industry back to work in Northern Colorado."
  • Ensure water is there
Excerpt: "Water is the life-blood in Eastern Colorado. I’ll do everything in my power to ensure we have the water to support our farmers and ranchers."
  • Protect life
Excerpt: "I am 100% Pro-Life and will work to protect our God-given right to life for those who don’t have a voice."
  • Limit size, scope of government
Excerpt: "Colorado families are tightening their belts so there’s no excuse for our government not to do the same. As your State Representative, I will work to tackle the tough issues, ridding bureaucrats of control and give control back to its rightful owners."

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 Colorado 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.
