Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Waldron's website highlights the following campaign themes:[2]

Budget & Taxes

  • Excerpt: "California taxpayers are among the highest taxes in the country – we do not have a revenue problem. I have signed a pledge to not raise taxes because North County families have to make budget priorities at home – it is time that Sacramento politicians do the same."

Immigration

  • Excerpt: "In the State Assembly, I will author legislation to strengthen penalties for businesses that hire illegal immigrants, and fight to prevent our hard earned tax dollars from being spent on services to illegal immigrants."

Transportation

  • Excerpt: "In the State Assembly, I will fight to clear the bureaucratic roadblocks and bring transportation dollars to North County. I will work with regional leaders to ensure that more of our gas tax dollars are returned back to our region."

Public Safety

  • Excerpt: "In the State Assembly I will continue to fight to protect our children from gang violence and sexual predators. I will support tougher sentences, including life sentences for one-strike child predators."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in California

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 California 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.
