Issues

Political Courage test

Huber provided answers to the California State Legislative Election 2008 Political Courage Test. The test informs voters how a candidate would vote on the issues if elected. When asked her legislative priorities she stated:

"I want to focus on improving education and expanding opportunities for people to change their station in life, like I did. It's harder today to do what I did and we have to change that course.

I went without health care and have witnessed the impact of high medical bills. I am aware of the struggles families and businesses face everyday.

I want to see the district have the kind of economic opportunities that come with good paying local jobs, so people don't have to spend 75 minutes commuting to their jobs but can spend that time with their families."[2]

Legislative scorecard

Capitol Weekly, California's major weekly periodical covering the state legislature, publishes an annual legislative scorecard to pin down the political or ideological leanings of every member of the legislature based on how they voted on an assortment of bills in the most recent legislative session. The 2009 scores were based on votes on 19 bills, but did not include how legislators voted on the Proposition 1A (2009). On the scorecard, "100" is a perfect liberal score and "0" is a perfect conservative score. [3],[4]

On the 2009 Capitol Weekly legislative scorecard, Huber ranked as a 42.[5]

Campaign donors

2010

In 2010, Huber raised $3,402,035 in contributions. [10]

Her four largest contributors were:

Donor Amount
California Democratic Party $1,926,107
Sacramento County Democratic Central Cmte $190,000
Stanislaus County Democratic Central Cmte $155,000
Los Angeles County Democratic Party $95,000

2008

Below are Huber's top 5 campaign contributors in the 2008 election:[11]

Contributor 2008 total
California Democratic Party $488,055
Democratic Central Cmte of Marin $100,000
Sacramento County Democratic Central Cmte $63,093
Del Norte County Democratic Central Cmte $63,000
Stanislaus County Democratic Central Cmte $25,000

Huber was identified in a 2010 report by California Watch as a state legislator who received contributions from several county party central committees. According to the campaign watchdog, Proposition 34 "permits individuals to contribute a maximum of $3,900 directly to candidates for the state Legislature. But under those same rules, donors can contribute eight times as much, or $32,400, to party central committees in each of California's 58 counties. The committees are then free to pass along those donations to candidates."[12]

"California Watch offered strong evidence of that. Thus the Democratic Central Committee in tiny Del Norte sent $63,000 to 10th District Assemblywoman Alyson Huber. Marin's party committee sent $100,000 and Sacramento's $25,000.
Locked in a tight race with San Joaquin County Supervisor Jack Sieglock, Huber outspent her opponent by $175,000 in the final month of the campaign and won by a slim 500 votes."[12]
