Creating Jobs By Helping Businesses

This includes funding for personnel, training and equipment with a special focus on ensuring that local law enforcement officials are not forgotten in Sacramento."

Keeping The Inland Empire Moving

  • Excerpt: "Transportation is an issue that requires us to always look to the future, and not just act on the problems of today. Eric Linder is working every day to make sure that for today’s residents and future generations, the Inland Empire keeps moves forward."

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 California 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.
