Debates

On July 7, 2011, Democrats Ed Selby, Leslie Huhn and Jim Nye sent a letter to Republican incumbents Alison McHose, Gary Chiusano and Steven Oroho, challenging them to a series of debates to take place before the November 8 general election. Leslie Huhn stated that Republicans have "had it too easy" in recent elections, and that they have taken their constituents for granted for too long.[5]

The Democrats gave Republicans 10 days to respond. The same day (July 7), Lou Crescitelli, spokesman for the District 24 Republicans, confirmed the GOP incumbents would participate in the debates. Since redistricting took place, 11 new county municipalities were added to the district. Ed Selby (D) suggested the need to "expand"[5] because the newly annexed counties might not know the candidates as well. The invitation to debate was not sent to the two Independent candidates in Assembly District 24, Rose Ann Salanitri and Mark Quick.[5]

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in New Jersey

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 Jersey 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.
