Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Greiner's campaign website highlights the following issues:[1]

Jobs & Economic Growth

  • Excerpt: "Marcellus Shale natural gas exploration is transforming Pennsylvania's economy, bringing new jobs to our state, and helping existing businesses grow. That's why Keith has taken a common sense approach to make sure our state reaches its full potential for job creation from these activities while ensuring our natural resources are protected."

Fiscal Discipline

  • Excerpt: "In Harrisburg, Keith has made government do more with less by doing what we do at home: focusing the money we have on the priorities that matter. That means making sure our tax dollars are spent on things that make a real difference for all of us - like job creation, education, public safety, agriculture and looking out for our seniors and children."

Education

  • Excerpt: "Keith knows that traditional public education is not right for every child. That's why he has supported all educational opportunities, including home schooling, on-line learning, school choice, and more. Parents should have the right to provide their children with what's best for them, and Keith is working to make sure they can."

Preserving Our Natural Heritage

  • Excerpt: "Keith is also working everyday to help family farms survive and thrive -- both because of their importance to our local economy and their importance to protecting our natural heritage for years to come."

Reform Harrisburg

  • Excerpt: "Just like he promised, Keith refuses the per diems, meals and cell phone paid for by our tax dollars.and will push to cut the perks given to all legislators. Keith will never vote to raise his own pay. He will also post all his office expenses on-line for public review."

Scorecards

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

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 Pennsylvania 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.
