Campaign themes


Hayes's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]


  • Excerpt: "I will continue to be active in the successful effort to foster partnerships between job creators and government to overcome obstacles to growth and more efficiently use limited resources to keep our economy strong."


  • Excerpt: "I will continue to make the delivery of a 21st Century education to our children in these competitive times a top priority. I will insist on flexibility for students, families and educators to bring innovation and real improvement to our classrooms. I will continue to work to get the federal government out of our schools, and to fight the unfunded mandates and other demands on our educators that drain resources needed to insure a successful education for our kids."

Public Safety

  • Excerpt: "We also must hold offenders accountable in a responsible and effective way. I support sentencing alternatives to keep non-violent offenders, including drug users, out of jail and on the road to recovery. I also support mental health court to give us flexibility and a humane alternative in dealing with those offenders who suffer with mental illness. Finally, I will continue to fight for justice, including restitution, for crime victims and families."


  • Excerpt: "We must also keep transportation tax funds for transportation projects, and stop efforts to add sales tax on transportation projects. We must continue to find ways to deliver needed public transportation more effectively and economically to allow us to expand coverage without tax increases."

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