Campaign themes

2012

On his campaign website, Coghill listed seven main issues, here are excerpts:[3]

  • Energy
  • Gas Storage and Trucking
  • Drilling in the Interior
  • Natural Gas Pipeline
  • Susitna-Watana Dam Project
  • Healy Clean Coal
  • Renewable Energy
  • Efficiency
  • Natural Resources
"Alaska is blessed with plentiful natural resources in the way of fish, timber, oil & gas, coal, metals, minerals, and agriculture. Alaska’s constitution calls for responsible stewardship and wise resource development for the benefit of our people. Our land is ripe for production. Increased production means more jobs, more state revenue, and more investment in Alaska."
  • Education
"More choice makes for a better educational outcome. The Department of Education is disconnected from the realities in Alaska. Instead of one-size-fits-all nationwide standards, Alaska should have authority over its own education system."
  • Eielson AFB
"Eielson and Fort Wainwright make up 35 percent of the local economy. Eielson Air Force Base provides civilian jobs and has an economic impact of $289 million each year on the Fairbanks area. I will do what I can to protect Eielson AFB."
  • Your PFD
"In a recent mail out, Joe Thomas said I voted three times to spend your permanent fund on government. That simply is not true"
  • Accomplishments
Includes a list of legislation sponsored by Coghill. See here for details

"During the three years I have represented the highway communities of the Richardson and Glenn Highways, energy has been a priority, as has resource development."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Alaska

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 Texas 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.
