Campaign themes

2013 special election

Osgood's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

Education

  • Excerpt: "New Hampshire is responsible for the cost of a basic and equal education for all children K through 12 even if some communities have to offset poorer communities. This is a State responsibility not an individual community one."

Respect of our founders

  • Excerpt: "Dedicated to the true meaning of the constitution and the importance to acknowledge the reference to God in the Declaration of Independence. That we are endowed by our Creator with the rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness."

Life

  • Excerpt: "Dedicated to protect the right to life. My convictions regarding the sanctity of life have always been clear and consistent. Life begins at conception."

Right to bear arms

  • Excerpt: "Dedicated to our second amendment rights. Our founding fathers wanted to guarantee our God given liberties. They wanted us to be able to defend ourselves and that is why they gave us the second amendment."

Taxes and economy

  • Excerpt: "Taxes are necessary to run government. The size of government is controllable. Keeping government small is important to keep taxes as low as possible. This will stimulate the economy and create jobs."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New Hampshire

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 New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
