Hall's website highlights the following campaign themes:

Support for Our Strong Coal Industries

  • Excerpt: "We must diligently work to ensure that our rules and regulations regarding coal production protect our men and women miners by ensuring them stable employment in the safest possible conditions. West Virginia coal has given our country a great domestic resource for energy, and we must continue to lead the nation in this technology."

Volunteer Fire Departments

Providing a pension will not only compensate those who have provided this invaluable service, but also attract and retain new volunteers, ensuring that small towns and communities across our state are protected."

Support for Our Public Teachers

  • Excerpt: "Only by working together can a child truly reach his or her potential. When drafting or reviewing education legislation, we must ensure that teachers are given the proper resources and realistic expectations for success, and look for opportunities that put a child’s educational experience back into the hands of both the teacher and the parents."

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 West Virginia scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.
