Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Gregerson's campaign website highlights the following issues:[3]

Improving Transportation

  • Excerpt: "You can count on two things from me on transportation if I’m elected to the legislature. I will fight for the critical transportation projects needed to keep South King County moving. I will work across party lines to procure the votes to get this done."

Ensuring Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt: "I will work to streamline and consolidate these districts. This will save hundreds of thousands of dollars in administrative costs and make it easier to understand our tax bills."

Closing Tax Loopholes

  • Excerpt: "I will support legislation that will review tax loopholes and ensure that either they are serving the purpose they were intended in the first place."

Making Health Care Affordable

  • Excerpt: "I will be on the front lines making sure we get the Affordable Care Act right. No family should go bankrupt because of medical bills. No senior citizen should have to choose between medicine and food. Let’s ensure Washington State is a leader and model for affordable health care for the whole country."

Protecting our Environment

  • Excerpt: "I’ve been involved in the Prescription Drug Take Back programs to help keep Puget Sound and our waterways clean. At the same time, I am gearing up to work to ban toxic flame retardants in our home furniture for our own safety and especially that of our children."

Scorecards

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 scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
