Thompson's campaign website highlighted the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Jobs are Antoine’s #1 priority since, under the leadership of current government officials, over 60% of residents in 141st will help develop jobs through his plan to link local and state development projects with NYS Dept. of Labor and BETC. He is also dedicated to establishing year-round youth employment programs."
- Excerpt: "Opportunity for all has been Antoine’s mission all of his adult life. Antoine knows the 141st District needs more livable neighborhoods that are economically and culturally strong and safe. His plan is for a greater investment by the state in neighborhood housing agencies to help with the repair of single and two family homes especially for senior citizens."
- Excerpt: "Business growth is the core of Antoine’s J.O.B.S. plan. As the Assemblyman from the 141st will support small businesses by cutting government red-tape, creating small business loan and grant programs, enforcing local and state MWBE laws, and improving neighborhood business districts."
- Excerpt: "Schools have long been an important focus for Antoine, as children can only succeed when they are part of a strong education program. Antoine believes that smaller class sizes, before and after-school programs, vocational/career technical education programs, restorative justice and increased parental involvement are essential to the future of Buffalo Public Schools. He is determined to secure NYS State funding for the Say YES program, so that more district students go to college."
