Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Barnhart's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[2]

Building a Thriving Economy

  • Excerpt: "Phil believes all Oregonians should have the opportunity to work and provide for their families. He's fought to support small businesses, and he'll continue to work tirelessly on their behalf, securing tax credits and easier access to capital and loans so they can continue to create jobs in our community. He'll also help local businesses by making sure state contracts send our tax dollars back to our community."

Shaping a Strong Education System

  • Excerpt: "The success of Oregon's future depends on the quality of our public schools—but budget cuts have hindered our schools' success and our children's ability to learn and grow. Phil will work hard to protect our educational opportunities by providing funding for our schools, to reduce class sizes and maintain enriching school programs."

Equipping Our Future Workforce

  • Excerpt: "Phil knows that innovative educational and job-training opportunities can help build a bright future for Oregon's graduates. He'll work to provide funding for job-training programs, including apprenticeships, career shadowing and business and online partnerships. He'll also fight to reverse the trend of tuition hikes, so students will have opportunities for affordable community colleges, universities and vocational programs."

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