Campaign themes


Mach's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Jobs
Excerpt: "In order to protect and support the middle class in Arizona, we need to encourage quality job growth. Our leaders need to support the innovative, hard working spirit of Arizonans by finding responsible and effective ways to increase job growth in Arizona."
  • Education
Excerpt: "As the first member of my family to earn a bachelor degree, I have personally experienced how education has opened doors that otherwise would have remained closed. Access to quality education is crucial to prepare our children for jobs of the future in a competitive global market. Our local and state economy depends on it."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "I understand firsthand the importance of access to quality healthcare."
  • Local Control
Excerpt: "The people of Southern Arizona are tired of Maricopa County telling us what we should do with the taxes we pay. We are tired of them sweeping funds meant for improved infrastructure, telling us what we should do with our water, air and land, and assuming they know what is best for Southern Arizona."

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 Arizona scorecards, email suggestions to
