Issues

Campaign themes

2012

Moreno's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[5]

  • Jobs and Improving Colorado’s Economy

Excerpt: "It’s unacceptable for Adams County families to have to hold multiple jobs in order to make ends meet. We will work together to rebuild the middle class and make sure the most vulnerable people in our community have access to good-paying jobs."

  • Creating a Fair Education System

Excerpt: "It was not until college that I fully realized the inequality our education system perpetuates in Colorado. I worked hard in school and was accepted to one of our nation’s top universities. However, I was ill equipped for the academic rigor of college. I studied with outdated high school textbooks while my college peers came from school districts with virtually unlimited resources. Our kids deserve better. It is imperative that we create an education system that ensures all Colorado kids have the opportunity to succeed."

  • Transportation

Excerpt: "Adams County currently does not receive its fair share of transportation funding. We have aging interstates, bridges and roads to fix. I will use my experience at the local level to propose innovative solutions to Colorado’s transportation challenges."

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 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.
