  • Budget
Excerpt: "As your State Senator I will work hard to bring NH’s budget into balance utilizing sound budget practices."
  • Size of Government

We need to apply current technologies to eliminate duplication of records and responsibilities, increase operational efficiency, and streamline the process when multiple agencies are involved to meet the public need."
  • Jobs
Excerpt: "As your State Senator, I will work hard to continue my support for small businesses. I will fight to keep our manufacturing sector.

  • Education
Excerpt: "I am strong advocate that New Hampshire must provide the opportunity for all our children to reach their highest educational potential. The state needs to meet the cost of education as efficiently as possible. Quality education advances good citizenship, knowledge, self worth, and participation in public affairs and our unique citizen government here in New Hampshire."
  • Environment
Excerpt: "If elected I would work tirelessly to protect our unique, complex, and fragile environment; support conservation efforts to maintain the preservation of these natural resources and our special quality of life here in the Seacoast."

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 New Hampshire scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
