Charlie has fought to ease our tax burden

Charlie stands with Tinker Air Force Base

  • Excerpt: "Charlie Joyner fully understands the huge, statewide impact of TAFB on our economy. He will always work to keep Tinker strong, and he will wisely leverage Tinker’s assets to attract new industry and jobs."

Charlie will push government out of the way

Charlie has fought to drive down workers’ compensation rates, end lawsuit abuse and reduce the red tape that obstructs the path to prosperity. Charlie will also fight the job-killing federal mandates of ObamaCare."

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 Oklahoma scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
