Issues

Campaign themes

2014

Kampf's campaign website highlighted the following issues:[1]

Jobs/Economy

  • Excerpt: "Warren knows that these are only first steps and our state needs to continue its efforts to become more competitive in attracting jobs. He will continue to work for tax structure changes that put our state in-line with others, regulatory reforms that protect our people while providing fair and uniform oversight, and more."

Property Taxes

  • Excerpt: "Warren will continue to push for mandate relief that will reduce the burden placed on local governments and school districts to pay for things for which they receive no state funding; this would help reduce unfair costs for taxpayers."

Spending

  • Excerpt: "While important steps to instill fiscal discipline have been taken, Warren knows there is still more we can do to address the things that drive up costs in state and local government. That is why he has introduced comprehensive public pension reform legislation that protects the pensions of current employees while requiring all new hires to take part in a defined contribution, 401k-type plan like those of workers in the private sector. He will also continue pushing for mandate relief that will help reduce spending for local governments and school districts."

Reform

  • Excerpt: "Warren has fought for real reform to ensure open and transparent government, and save taxpayers money."

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 Pennsylvania scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
