Campaign themes


Kreiss-Tomkins' website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]


  • Excerpt: "Private enterprise creates jobs, and government helps provide the foundation on which those jobs are created. Harbors, roads, ferries, electricity, water and sewer, education — all are foundational to the economy. If government can create and maintain infrastructure, business will create jobs."


  • Excerpt: "I support good fishing policy in the legislature, and I will hoof it to Seattle, Portland, or Nome to lobby for Southeast Alaska fishing fleet at the North Pacific Fishery Management Council or the IPHC."


  • Excerpt: "I support (and have voted for) adequate funding of public education. It’s not happening right now. It should."


  • Excerpt: "Expensive energy suffocates economies. Southeast needs to develop new energy resources, improve energy efficiency, and encourage electrical interdependence. Investing in energy infrastructure is an investment in the Southeast Alaska economy."

Native and Rural

  • Excerpt: "I believe in providing full and equal access to government, no matter how small or isolated the community."

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 Texas scorecards, email suggestions to

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.


In 2014, the 28th Alaska State Legislature was in session from January 21 to April 20.

Legislators are scored on "how supportive they are of Alaska’s private business sector."[10]
