Tine's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
Building the New Economy
- Excerpt: "The number one priority in the North Carolina legislature today must be the encouragement of a strong economy and job creation. In the northeast, we have opportunities to expand jobs in manufacturing, alternative energy, telework, agribusiness, and logistics. Good jobs like these are dependent upon investment in workforce development, infrastructure and delivering consistent and fair regulations."
- Excerpt: "The current legislature chose a philosophical stance on taxes over the priority of work force development and education when they refused to keep a ½ penny sales tax to properly fund schools. Paul Tine will fight to insure that our schools are properly funded for today and tomorrow."
- Excerpt: "North Carolina’s K-12 system is being overhauled to better meet the future needs of our economy. It is crucial to ensure that they have the proper funding to train teachers in the new curriculum and provide the one to one computer to student ratio that has proven to drive success."
- Excerpt: "Our community colleges were among the hardest hit in the current budget. Rural communities rely on community colleges to retrain workers, prepare students for college and develop the skills needed for local jobs."
- Excerpt: "World class jobs follow world class infrastructure. When elected, Paul Tine will work to modernize and make more efficient the Department of Transportation, to maximize the state’s budget. He will continue to bring a focus on developing broadband infrastructure to give the district access to the best education, healthcare and jobs. He will support the development of an alternative system to build jobs today while developing the capacity for tomorrow."

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.
