Neville's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[2]

My Beliefs
  • I believe that hard work, sacrifice, and dedication should be rewarded, not taxed and regulated to death by the government.
  • I believe that if businesses and families have to cut spending when they have less money, so should state government.
  • I believe governments do not create jobs. People do!
  • I believe that all human life is precious and must be protected.
  • I believe Colorado needs a broader range of educational choices for parents, from tax-credits to vouchers and charter schools.
  • I believe Colorado needs strong, conservative leadership.[3]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Colorado

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 Colorado 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.
