|Alabama Committee Assignments, 2015|
|• Agriculture and Forestry|
|• Constitution, Campaigns and Elections|
|• Education Policy|
Fincher's website highlighted the following themes:
|“||I will support term limits for the legislature. My past experiences have prepared me to take the next step. I have showed a willingness to work with those from the other party in pursuit of the public good. I will listen and be available to all of the citizens. I am deeply concerned about the direction our country is headed. We have become a society which encourages government dependence rather than self-reliance. I see the foundations upon which our culture was built being eroded and swept away. I promise you honesty and transparency in all that I do. No one will work harder to bring jobs and economic development to this area.||”|

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.
Note: As of March 2015, we were unable to locate any scorecards for the state of Alabama. If you are aware of a scorecard Ballotpedia has not included please email it to email@example.com.
Fincher and his wife, Sheila, have two sons.
