Van Winkle's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Jobs & the Economy
- Excerpt: "Kevin vows to oppose job killing tax and fee increases. He will work to reduce fees (such as vehicle registration fees), roll back burdensome and unnecessary regulations and get government out of the way so that the people of Highlands Ranch can more freely live, work and grow in our great state."
- Excerpt: "Parents, not bureaucrats in Washington, Denver or the Unions, know the specific educational needs of their children. For that reason, Kevin thinks parents should be empowered to choose the most effective education for their children. Furthermore, kids from all backgrounds should have the equal opportunity to succeed."
- Excerpt: "That means when two average college graduates get married, they must start their young family under the burden of more than $50,000 of debt! This is a crisis and while it’s been caused by several factors, politicians in both federal and state government have played a big role. Kevin would work to stop and reverse the dangerous cycle of tuition and fee increases."
- Excerpt: "Kevin knows the high cost of heating our homes in winter, keeping them cool in the summer and the gas tank full. We not only have to pay for rising energy prices directly, but it’s a cost all our Highlands Ranch businesses and grocery stores must pass on to you, the customer."
- Excerpt: "Kevin is committed to supporting common-sense health care reforms that will lower costs, promote quality and preserve health care choices."
