Campaign themes

2014

Sinicki's campaign website highlights the following issues:[2]

Jobs

  • Excerpt: "No matter what Gov. Walker and his Republican allies say, $7.25 per hour is NOT a living wage. I think it’s shameful that Republicans in Wisconsin want to continue to hurt so many workers and families here in Wisconsin by continuing to oppose an increase to our state’s minimum wage. I believe our state’s minimum wage should be a living wage, because no one working a full time job should be forced to live in poverty."

Public Education

  • Excerpt: "During my time in the State Assembly, I have worked hard to ensure Wisconsin’s public education system, but never more than the past few years. Gov. Walker and Republicans in the Legislature have presided over historic cuts to funding for public education in Wisconsin, and I have fought hard to undo the damage they have done."

Veterans

  • Excerpt: "Voters and especially veterans need to know where the candidates stand on this issue. We owe a debt to our Home Front Heroes and it is our moral duty to restore justice for veterans and their families."

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 Wisconsin 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.
