Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Livermore posted the following to his campaign website as a "platform for this coming legislative session:"[1]

1. Keep taxes at a minimum. There are ways to reduce the cost of government without raising taxes on businesses or individuals.
2. Keep Nevada employed. This also means keeping employees of state and local government employed since they comprise about 40 percent of the workforce in our city.
3. Listen to business. Keeping businesses healthy to support our economy is needed more than ever in this economic downturn. I support the Governor’s efforts to reduce unnecessary regulations.
4. Keep our state business-friendly. The Governor is waging an important campaign to attract new businesses to the state and to our region. I am in total support of his new economic development plan.
5. Work for transparency in government. The voting public needs to be kept aware of what seemingly goes on “behind closed doors.”

Scorecards

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

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 Nevada scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
