On his campaign website, Addivinola listed five issues. They are:
- On his website, Addivinola says, "As a Congressman for Massachusetts 5th District, I pledge to work tirelessly to promote bills that stimulate job creation and oppose initiatives that stifle our economic activity and decrease employment growth."
- On his website, Addivinola says, "As a part of my job creation platform, I believe that the federal government should create more incentives for businesses to grow and create jobs by lowering their tax burden. Businesses should be able to use their funds for growth. Business expansion translates into more job creation and economic growth and this is what our country needs the most."
- On his website, Addivinola says, "I believe that American taxpayers are entitled to know everything that the government does with their money. Our government should spend taxpayer's money wisely and be accountable to the citizens."
- Health Care
- On his website, Addivinola says, "All Americans should have access to affordable private health care coverage. I am against health care legislation that results in higher taxes, increased government spending and lower quality of health care and I will oppose such legislation."
- Energy Policy
- On his website, Addivinola says, "America’s energy policies should be designed to address two priorities - economic growth and energy independence. Our current energy policy is ineffective in stimulating economic prosperity and protecting Americans from excessive gas prices. The failure of current Administration to stimulate job growth is impacting American families even harder as gas prices continue to rise and many Americans have to cut back on other important expenditures or simply cannot afford to pay them."
