DeMarco's professional experience includes working as a partner in the law firm of Parsons, Lee and Juliano.
DeMarco served on these committees in the 2011-2012 legislative session:
- Subcommittee on Campaigns and Elections, Chair
- Jefferson County Legislation Committee, Alabama House of Representatives
- Judiciary Committee, Alabama House of Representatives, Chair
DeMarco's campaign website listed the following issues:
- End ObamaCare
- Excerpt: "Obamacare threatens families in Alabama and across the country. It must end. I will work to find a free-market approach to healthcare needs that does not take away individual’s rights and run up the costs to families. We must have a common sense approach that focuses on the well-being of the patient."
- Excerpt: "While I’ll continue to focus on economic development issues which help small and large businesses alike, I’m also committing to continue to support our local small business owners – who serve as the backbone of our entire economic system."
- Deficit Reduction
- Excerpt: "Our country is currently over $17,000,000,000,000 in debt and this is absolutely inexcusable. That’s almost $55,000 for every citizen in the US, and if you are a taxpayer, your share is almost triple that. To anyone who has balanced a checkbook before, what we need to do is obvious: we must cut spending until it is less than we are bringing in."
- Economic Development
- Excerpt: "We have a proud and able workforce in Alabama’s Sixth District. I plan to support those hardworking families with common sense leadership that creates opportunities to grow business and create jobs while doing away with out-of-control government regulations that slow growth."
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "I have a strong record as a fiscal conservative that I will take to Washington. I have always fought the establishment when it comes to tax increases and will continue that fight. We must cut the deficit, balance the budget and identify ways to support the hardworking families of Alabama’s Sixth District."

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.
Note: As of December 2014, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to firstname.lastname@example.org.
