|• Counties, Cities and Towns|
|• Courts of Justice|
Campbell's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Economic Development
"I will propose, if elected, to appropriate more discretionary money for localities to hire industrial recruiters and economic development professionals to level the playing field with other areas of the Commonwealth."
"I would support legislation to allow for alterations in the school schedules to provide for a standard four-day week. This would greatly reduce transportation, infrastructure and human resources costs and offer several advantages for students, teachers and the system as a whole."
- Public Safety
"I further support the institution of armed police officers into every school in the Commonwealth. The tragedy that has befallen places such as Sandy Hook and Columbine should never happen here at home and I believe the best way to ensure this is by providing a well-trained, well-armed security officer as a first line of defense."
Campbell won election in the 2013 election for Virginia House of Delegates District 6. Campbell defeated Jack Weaver in the June 11 Republican primary. Campbell defeated Jonathan McGrady (D) and Barbara T. Hall (I) in the general election on November 5, 2013.
|Virginia House of Delegates District 6 Republican Primary, 2013|
|Jeffrey Campbell Incumbent||70.7%||684|
Incumbent Anne B. Crockett-Stark (R) did not seek re-election, leaving the race in this usually Republican district an open seat. Presidential candidate Mitt Romney (R) won 66 percent of the vote in this district in 2012, and Governor Bob McDonnell (R) won 72 percent in 2009. Despite the uphill climb, Democrats put forward a strong bid for this seat with Jonathan McGrady, a candidate who has a concealed weapons permit, an aversion to tax increases, and a door-knocking campaign despite the occasional unfriendly dog. The addition of Independent challenger Barbara T. Hall had the potential to complicate the race for Republican candidate Campbell, but Democratic candidates were likely to win elsewhere before they scored a victory in this district.
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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
