Vick's website highlights the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "Jobs can only be created if we make sure that regulations in our State are not overly burdensome, that permits are readily available and easily accessible, and tax rates are stable and not prohibitive."
- Excerpt: "We must make sure that more of your money makes it into the classroom, and that less is spent on bureaucracy. We must ensure that education is “fully funded,” as education is the paramount duty of Washington State."
- Excerpt: "Adopting an “all-of-the-above” energy policy, and categorizing hydro power as “renewable,” are just a few ways that we can work to keep energy costs low. We have an abundance of affordable energy here in the Northwest, and we should not artificially inflate the price of that energy to the consumer!"
Protecting The Vulnerable
- Excerpt: "One of the most important social responsibilities we face is taking care of the most vulnerable of our citizens: the elderly, the young, the mentally-ill and the disabled. I am committed to finding ways for us to more effectively serve and protect those that need it the most."
- Excerpt: "We must make sure we are equipped with the tools needed to stay safe and keep violent offenders off the streets. I will work to ensure that our communities always have the resources they need to provide protection for our families."

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.
- Legislators are scored on their votes for or against CCF's position.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on "small business interests."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on pro-choice issues.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on their "work to support and advance the UW and higher education."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on environmental protection issues.
- Legislators are scored on whether they voted for or against WSLC's position.
