Brown's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "The up and down cost of energy has hurt families and businesses in Fairbanks for decades. There is no reason with the energy resoures Alaska has for this to be the case."
- Excerpt: "Low graduation rates have plagued us for too long. We must work with our teachers and schools to bring up those graduation rates, with respect to Alaska’s unique educational challenges and without the burden of poorly conceived federal requirements like “No Child Left Behind”."
- Excerpt: "Honest government means doing what’s right, even when no one is watching. We must restore the trust that has been lost in our elected leaders. Decisions shouldn’t be made behind closed doors."
Brown and his wife, Kelly, have two children.
