Campaign themes

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

Jobs/Economy

  • Excerpt: "Tony believes in the HIRE Colorado plan, a plan to give Colorado companies the first crack at state contracts so that we can keep our tax dollars and jobs right here in Colorado, instead of shipping them to other states or overseas."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Tony is a strong advocate for quality public schools, and will fight against irresponsible cuts to public education and against unfunded mandates at the Capitol. He will continue to be a strong voice to rehire teachers and reduce class sizes in Colorado Springs."

Healthcare

  • Excerpt: "Tony believes that every Coloradan should have access to high-quality affordable healthcare. That’s why he supports the Colorado Health Exchange – a free market based solution that makes insurance companies compete against each other for your healthcare dollar, driving prices down and driving access and quality up."

Environment

  • Excerpt: "Tony got a 100% endorsement from Colorado Conservation Voters, and believes strongly in protecting our air and water quality so that our kids have safe drinking water and safe air to breathe."

Seniors

  • Excerpt: "Tony believes that PERA recipients and those who live on Medicare and Social Security need to be protected, and that we need to honor the promises we made to the greatest generation. He will fight against irresponsible cuts to Medicare and make sure that seniors in our community can live safe, healthy, independent lives, but should have access to safety net services when they need them."

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 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.
