Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Quinn's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Economic Plan for Northern Wisconsin: 3 point solution

  • Excerpt: "The State of Wisconsin must continue to ease the tax burden on manufacturing if the state intends to attract new employers and to insure that existing businesses can afford to remain a central part of our communities. Governor Walker has pushed legislation that will nearly eliminate the income tax on manufacturing business in Wisconsin. As your representative, I will maintain support for this measure. Global economies have always required states to provide a competitive business environment to protect local markets."
  • Excerpt: "One in every 13 jobs is sustained by tourism in Wisconsin. Without tourism in Wisconsin, every family would have to pay an additional $575 a year in new taxes. As your representative, I shall focus on encouraging and developing tourism."
  • Excerpt: "Govern Walker’s efforts to put a greater emphasis on our technical educational system require legislative support. As your representative, I will improve collaboration between business and educational communities to insure that Wisconsin can lead in jobs training and growth."

Local Control

  • Excerpt: "As your next State representative, I will work hard to put our communities on a path of independence from state and federal influences."

Education

  • Excerpt: "While Wisconsin is a local-control state, the rights of the public are not adequately defined in those state statutes. Unfortunately, parents and citizens often face stumbling blocks when trying to exercise local control of schools. As your state representative, I will author legislation which will better define the rights of parents and citizens in forming educational policies at the local level. This legislation will empower teachers and assure that they enjoy the decision-making authority that is granted to other professionals."

Term Limits

  • Excerpt: "Term limits are essential in order to ensure that new blood has a chance to overcome entrenched politicians. Without term limits, creation and innovation becomes stifled. It is time we have a State Representative that is willing to challenge and call out any politician who stands in the way of these common sense reforms."

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 Wisconsin 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.
