Tarr's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Safe Neighborhoods and Public Safety
- Excerpt: "Neighborhood safety is a main concern in our area. With children playing outside, neighborhood speeding and cut-through traffic is an issue because it puts children and other pedestrians in an unsafe situation. I will work to improve pedestrian and bicycle access, and decrease cut-through traffic."
- Excerpt: "I’m an Educator and believe a good education is the foundation to a successful life. I have taught in our public schools and know we have great talent in the teachers and staff that run our schools. I believe our kids should have opportunities for success and recognize the diversity of the children we are teaching."
- Excerpt: "Lately, we’ve benefited from high oil revenue and have had a surplus. I believe legislators made the right decision in saving significant amounts of the surpluses we’ve had the last several years. We don’t know what the future will bring and I believe we need to plan for the future by saving, investing, and practicing fiscal responsibility."
- Excerpt: "I support the Senior Benefits Program and other social safety net programs to assist seniors on a fixed income."
- Excerpt: "We need to be innovative and work towards an economy that can be sustained long into the future. I will work hard to plan for the future and find ways to create economic opportunities for all Alaskans."
