Roddis' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Fighting For Jobs
- Excerpt: "State government’s #1 priority must be jobs. Investing in transportation, education and technology, will create better-paying jobs and get our economy moving again. We must also expand community colleges and vocational training to help prepare workers for new high-tech jobs."
Protecting The Middle Class And Seniors
- Excerpt: "As a father, I have worked hard to provide for my family. We must stop playing politics with workers’ pensions and repeal Governor Snyder’s retirement tax. And we must help working families get ahead instead of giving billion dollar tax breaks to big corporations."
Strengthening Public Schools
- Excerpt: "As the Finance Director of a struggling school district, I worked hard to turn things around so teachers could keep their jobs and children would have a chance. Let’s stop the Republican’s cuts to education and restore funding now."
- Excerpt: "Michigan has the 5th highest tax on gasoline but we rank near the bottom for the least spending on roads. We must prioritize funding and get serious about fixing roads. It will attract new jobs and keep us safe."
