Bond's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Jobs and a Stronger Economy
- Excerpt: "Reform B&O tax to be based on net instead of gross receipts; then work to eliminate it altogether. Reform workers' comp to eliminate fraud. Reduce taxes on all businesses, not just homegrown WA businesses. Reduce regulation. Simplify process for start-ups. Make WA a Right to Work state (cannot force union membership)."
- Excerpt: "We can improve education, reward good teachers, give principals freedom and flexibility, give parents more choices, and stop micromanaging from Olympia if we attach the money to the student and allow competition do its miraculous work from within the system. I will work to raise academic standards by returning to an emphasis on math and reading so our students will be able to meet basic federal requirements, and by allowing principals and teachers to take a creative approach in order to help their students reach these standards."
- Curbing Runaway Government
- Excerpt: "Our elected officials are sucking us dry. This increase in cost is far higher than inflation and population growth. And now they want to increase it even more. ...Set aside 2% of the projected revenue, for a rainy-day fund; look at the tasks under State Government’s jurisdiction, according to our State Constitution (ten areas: Education, Transportation, etc.) and give each area its slice of the rest of the financial pie."
- Healthcare Solutions
- Excerpt: "First, individuals should be allowed to purchase only the coverage they desire...Second, in our very mobile society, insurance should not be job-based but should be available to individuals..."
- Defending Washington's Values
- Excerpt: "Elizabeth Scott notes that in Washington state, same-sex couples already have all the same legal rights and responsibilities as married couples under state law, and she will be voting to 'Reject' the redefinition of the term 'marriage.' Elizabeth believes that marriage is between one man and one woman, and she has been tested and proven committed to this position. Freedom of speech, religious freedom, and the right to follow one's conscience are at stake. On a similar note, Elizabeth Scott believes in the sanctity of life, from conception to natural death."

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.
- Legislators are scored on their votes for or against CCF's position.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on "small business interests."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on pro-choice issues.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on their "work to support and advance the UW and higher education."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on environmental protection issues.
- Legislators are scored on whether they voted for or against WSLC's position.
