Campaign themes

Jeter's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Transportation

  • Excerpt: "Rep. Jeter believes there needs to be a focus on the Metropolitan Planning Organization (MPO)/Rural Planning Organization (RPO) system to ensure consistency in how state transportation funds are spent. He will also continue to follow the implementation of the transportation reform bill he passed in order to ensure that roads are built where people and businesses are located and not where politicians live."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Rep. Jeter will continue to work to address the state's past due credit card bills in an effort to direct revenue toward better teacher compensation bringing NC more in line with national averages. He further plans to work to continue the transition from traditional textbooks and utilize technology that will allow for greater access at reduced costs."

Job Creation

  • Excerpt: "Rep. Jeter will continue to work to pursue the absolute goal that everyone who wants to work, can. He believes it is important to pursue Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) education in order to ensure that the children of North Carolina are prepared to capitalize on the jobs of tomorrow. Rep. Jeter will continue to lead the effort to position North Carolina to become the commerce hub of the southeastern United States."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in North Carolina

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 North Carolina scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
