Green's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Government of the people, for the people, by the people.
- Excerpt:"If we do not limit the government, we will lose the very thing that our country created for: Freedom. It is our right and we cannot let 'big government' take that away from us."
- Excerpt: "Even though State Representatives cannot make abortions illegal, we can fight for laws that would prevent taxpayers' money to fund these immoral acts."
- "Marriage is and should always be defined as between a man and a woman."
Repeal MN 25-25 Rule
- Excerpt: "This rule is the reason our heat, electric, and other energy bills have been increasing."
- Excerpt: "In rural Minnesota if you are not a small business owner, you probably work for one. If taxes are raised on these small business owners, it will mean more job losses in Minnesota. Let's not get pushed into a discussion on the best way to raise taxes, let's lower them across the board."
Socially responsible, yet competitive health care.
- Excerpt: "We need a review system and a less restrictive pay system in many cases (Tort reform.) This would end the large share of [malpractice] lawsuits and help bring down the costs a great deal. Illegal immigrants also add to the high costs of medical care. Providers also have to deal with a great amount of over regulation and mandatory paper work. We are also prohibited from buying health insurance across state lines. If Minnesotans were allowed this option the competition would also drive down costs."
Immigration and a controlled border
- Excerpt: "We need to strengthen our borders in order to protect ourselves. This does not mean building a great wall and locking it; but rather enforcing security to better guard our country. Another part of this is to enhance protection for those being effected (sic) by border jumpers, whether that means people within affected communities or those sent to guard the borders for us."
- Excerpt: "Education is not only teaching history, science, reading, math and writing. It is should also be the teaching of American ethics and values. Those values are reflected in the Constitution, The Federalists’ Papers and many of our countries’ founding documents."

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.
