Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Willett's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

Energy

  • Excerpt: "I strongly support the responsible development of oil, gas and coal in Mesa and Delta counties. I will support all of these industries and I will fight hard for the renewal of robust energy development on the West Slope."

Agriculture

  • Excerpt: "I will do all I can to support a strong and traditional business climate for farm and ranch operations and will fight against any and all efforts from the Feds to intrude; without that, we risk so much, including sell-offs, 'buy and dry', etc."

Spending

  • Excerpt: "I support spending on infrastructure and incentive-based programs if an economic generator is the likely outflow. Our roads and highways come to mind, as does technical and higher education. I favor the Taxpayers' Bill of Rights."

Tourism / Recreation

  • Excerpt: "I fully support motorsports (road and off-road), cycling (road and off-road), trails/access, rafting, skiing, hunting, etc. This type of outdoor recreation is one of the many reasons it is so wonderful to live on the Western Slope."

Manufacturing

  • Excerpt: "I support the ongoing efforts to expand the high-tech infrastructure for the Delta area, without which new companies are difficult to attract."

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.
