Rogers' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"We need to look beyond just test scores to provide schools where the whole child can flourish. I strongly support the “adequacy study” legislation currently in the State Legislature and I will fight to ensure that Arlington, Belmont, and Cambridge’s commitment to education is protected."
- Excerpt:"I will fight for strong enforcement of the laws that protect our environment and advocate for policies that help lead to development of the alternative energy sector and the creation of green jobs."
- Excerpt:"I believe we must forge a comprehensive solution to our State’s transportation challenges, which must include a long-term revenue solution for the MBTA. I will work tirelessly to bring all relevant stakeholders to the table in order to fashion a state-wide solution to transportation and infrastructure issues."
- Excerpt:"I will make controlling healthcare costs a top priority. One possible idea is to move away from a traditional fee-for-service cost structure and toward a so-called “global payments system” where healthcare providers are not paid based on each individual test or procedure, but a flat fee based on the type of condition being treated."

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.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
