Campaign themes

Hutton's website highlighted the following campaign themes:

  • Economy and jobs

Excerpt: "As your State Representative I will utilize my private sector experience to push for economic reforms that will free up the private sector. We must minimize our tax and regulation climate in order to encourage financial investments in Wisconsin's economy. A healthy economy means healthy communities. That is why we need to keep “Wisconsin Open for Business."

  • Taxes

Excerpt: "I pledge to stand with the taxpayers and reject any tax increases. We need to make Wisconsin a tax friendly state for our businesses, young families, and seniors."

  • Abortion

Excerpt: "I am 100% pro-life and believe that human life begins at conception. I will promote legislation that protects life and supports the elimination of any state or federal funding that contributes to the harm of our society's most vulnerable citizens."

  • Education

Excerpt: "As a father of four school aged children, quality education is a personal concern for our family. As your State Representative I will support policies that will increase academic achievement and accountability in our educational institutions. These policies can be achieved by restoring and strengthening local parental control over the schools, boards, and administration. The expansion of educational options, such as school choice and voucher programs, is critical to our children's success academically and professionally. Also, the demands of a modern workforce requires a focus on skilled workers for Wisconsin Manufacturers."

  • Second Amendment

Excerpt: "I will fight to protect the rights of law abiding citizens to bear arms as outlined in the U.S. Constitution. We need to enforce current laws to ensure firearms stay out of the hands of violent offenders."

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.
