I hear over and over that we need jobs, reasonable taxes, fiscal stewardship, excellent schools, protection of personal property rights, voter integrity, protection of our 2nd Amendment rights, and ultimately a means for hard work and American ingenuity to pay off. I will continue to promote these essentials.||”|

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.
