  • Getting Our Students Into VA Colleges

Excerpt: "Dave is working to get your children into Virginia colleges. Dave was able to get UVA, William and Mary, JMU and Virginia Tech to add hundreds of new in-state slots over the next three years."

  • Dave Albo stands up for NoVa!

Excerpt: "Dave Albo led the fight to successfully kill the 2008 transportation tax increase, which raised your taxes and then gave you only 30 cents for every road repair dollar you paid. ...Dave Albo fought the 2004 tax increase, which raised your sales taxes for schools but gave you only 30 cents for every dollar you spent."

Excerpt: "Widening of the Beltway, I-95 and I-395; New traffic signals throughout our community; Improve and realign Rt. 1 / Mt. Vernon Memorial Hwy. / Mulligan Rd. intersection"

  • Fighting Outrageous Taxation

Excerpt: "Repealed the Car Tax ...Cut the Food Tax in Half; Eliminated the Tax on Pharmaceuticals; Created a Sales Tax Holiday for School Clothing and Supplies"

  • Animals

Excerpt: "Dave helped eliminate the use of gas chambers to euthanize animals. It has been found that this is a painful way for an animal to die. ...In the past, a person could only be prosecuted for actually abusing an animal. Simply neglecting a pet (e.g. failing to give your dog food, water or shelter in extreme temperature) was not illegal. Dave's bill in the 2007 Session, made this abhorrent behavior a felony."

  • Excerpt: "Limiting Taxes so that while we can build roads and schools, we can also still afford to live in Fairfax County."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Virginia

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

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
