Cutler's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "I would also work to stop the practice of giving state legislators taxpayer funds in the form of “per-diems” for commuting to work. As your next state representative I’ll drive to work on my own dime."
- Excerpt: "We also need to stop unfunded mandates that tie the hands of our teachers and school administrators. While we need state standards, I'm a firm believer that decisions about our schools are best made at the local level."
- Excerpt: "Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. They are also the ones that support our community, sponsor our little league teams and donate to local charities. We must do more to support them."
- Excerpt: "I'm a firm believer that Massachusetts should push to make green jobs and green technology as vital a cog in our state's economy as health care, higher education or biotech."
- Excerpt: "Protecting our neediest citizens is a part of living in a commonwealth and my belief is that we need a government that is both cost-effective and compassionate."

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.
