Pavalock's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "The next generation will be saddled with massive debt and a diminished future unless we change our course in Hartford. As your Representative I will restore fiscal responsibility to our government and stop runaway spending by helping to create more jobs."
Unfunded State Mandates
- Excerpt: "I know it’s hard to understand how this issue affects our everyday lives. Essentially an Unfunded State Mandate occurs when the state government passes a law that requires our town to do something and doesn’t pay for it. The cost is passed onto the city and its taxpayers."
Liberties & Freedoms
- Excerpt: "I want to promote common sense laws that protect our right to bear arms, educate our children and empower us to make our own decisions regarding our lives."
- Excerpt: "The Governor claims to have a surplus despite having pothole ridden roads. As your Representative I want to increase public transportation through rail – No more buses to nowhere!"

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.
