Reinbold's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Resources
Excerpt: "Alaska is blessed with an abundance of natural resources, including oil and gas, fish, timber, minerals, and our Great Land’s natural beauty itself. Our economy depends heavily on natural resource development, which provides an abundance of jobs and funds a considerable share of State government."
  • Education
Excerpt: "With over 10 years of experience as a substitute teacher, I understand the many challenges of being in the classroom and deeply respect those who choose education as a career. As a State, we need to ensure our teachers are given the necessary tools and support to educate our children and that resources reach the classroom and are not wasted in bureaucracy."
  • Healthcare
Excerpt: "Having worked in the healthcare industry for almost 15 years, I bring comprehensive understanding of many healthcare issues facing Alaska."
  • Community
Excerpt: "At the heart of Alaska are its energetic and diverse communities. Strong communities help Alaskans come together in pursuit of common goals, and make possible the cooperation that we need both to tackle our biggest problems and enable our greatest successes."
  • Military
Excerpt: "My Dad was the Ballistic Missile Early Warning System Site Manager in Clear, Alaska, and my Father in Law worked as an orthopedic surgeon all over Alaska in the Air Force. Living in communities where the military was a major part of life, my husband and I grew up with both a deep appreciation for our armed services and an understanding of the unique challenges that service members often face."

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.


In 2014, the 28th Alaska State Legislature was in session from January 21 to April 20.

Legislators are scored on "how supportive they are of Alaska’s private business sector."[10]


Reinbold and her husband, Eric, have two children.[11]
