Political courage tests

Hullinghorst provided answers to the Colorado State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked his legislative priorities she replied:

"My top three legislative priorities include (1 ensuring universal access to health care, including mental health; (2 providing quality educational opportunities and support services to all Colorado children - early childhood through college and 3) providing a strong framework for environmental protection and energy sustainablilty. To adequately fund these efforts and invest again in Colorado's infrastructure, the legislature will need to take a variety of tax increase reform measures to Colorado citizens, including comprehensive reform of TABOR (Tax Payers' Bill of Rights)."[1]

Scorecards

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

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 Colorado 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.
