Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Faircloth's website highlighted the following campaign themes:[1]

  • Local Business
Excerpt: "My plan is to address the taxing system for small businesses as well as the other expenses business owners have to pay just to stay in business. Right now is a crucial time, and it’s a make or break time for many. So we need to allocate our authority to help all the business owners in the area, as well as those out of work. We have a lot of good people that can’t find jobs right now. We need to fix that; get them back to work; and increase our quality of living."
  • Our Infrastructure
Excerpt: "You should not have to feel like you are riding a carnival ride when traveling on these roads. The bumps, unlevel asphalt, potholes, just to name a few, not only make the drive horrible, but can also slowly damage the owners vehicle."
  • School Bullying
Excerpt: "Legislation was passed a year ago to make bullying a crime. However we have not seen much in the way of enforcement. But let’s take a minute to look at the real issue of bullying. Many people think its two kids fighting in the school, then the video being posted on Youtube. This issue goes way beyond that. Not only is that one of the issue but here is how bullying really works. We have the fighting which is obvious. But what about the few students that are pressuring their peers to the point to try drugs? Is that peer pressure or are our students being bullied into trying drugs? What about the teachers?"

2012

Faircloth's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

Local Businesses:

  • Excerpt: "My plan is to address the taxing system for small businesses as well as the other expenses business owners have to pay just to stay in business. Right now is a crucial time, and it’s a make or break time for many. So we need to allocate our authority to help all the business owners in the area, as well as those out of work. We have a lot of good people that can’t find jobs right now. We need to fix that; get them back to work; and increase our quality of living."

Our Infrastructure:

  • Excerpt: "There are also many other areas within the county with our roads as well. You should not have to feel like you are riding a carnival ride when traveling on these roads. The bumps, unlevel asphalt, potholes, just to name a few, not only make the drive horrible, but can also slowly damage the owners vehicle."

Rainy Day Fund:

  • Excerpt: "Our state is quickly approaching a fund that is nearly 1 billion dollars. They have meetings and debates of how to use this money. One means that needs to be addressed is our rescue squad systems. Some of our rescue squads need updating. But there is no money locally for this. We have to take this issue straight to Charleston, and get those funds here."

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 West Virginia scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
