Mackenzie's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "In an economic climate where Pennsylvania’s tax collections are already down, out of control government spending needs to be reduced so that lower taxes can be realized going forward."
Less Government Spending
- Excerpt: "Citizens know how to spend their money better than the government. Wasteful and excessive government spending is a reality and a critical look needs to be taken at all existing programs."
Excellent Constituent Service
- Excerpt: "Bloated, complicated government has created a maze of forms and paperwork for individuals. While working to reduce government, top-notch constituent service must be offered so that people can make government work for them. Responsiveness to constituents and accessibility are priorities that must always be carried out."
- Excerpt: "Having the right beliefs is important, but putting those beliefs into action is where the rubber meets the road. As the Director of Policy at Pennsylvania’s Department of Labor & Industry, Ryan was viewed as an effective and conservative policymaker who had the ability to persuade others with well-researched facts and figures."

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.
