Campaign themes


On her campaign website, Weber outlined her campaign themes:[1]

  • "As I examine this district, I realize that it was practically drawn for me. It includes San Diego State University, a place where I spent my career as a professor and administrator. It overlaps with much of the school board district that I represented for eight years. And, it is also the place where I am a homeowner, sent my children to public schools, and actively participated in the civic and cultural life of these neighborhoods for over 30 years. My roots run deep in the 79th. I ask for your support!"

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 Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to
