Dickey's 2011 special election campaign site emphasized his reasons for seeking office:
- "I have always been committed to serving this community that has done so much for me. I am ready to take my service to the next level and deliver for this district. With a struggling economy and 10% unemployment, we need an experienced businessperson who knows how to attract new jobs, balance budgets and keep taxes low. We need someone with the experience in agriculture to help our farmers and agribusiness expand and add new jobs. Now more than ever, we need a leader who is committed to our families, who has a record of service and has the experience to deliver for us. That's why I am running, and I will not let you down."

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.
