Stonier's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Creating Jobs and Improving Economy
- Excerpt: "For as many signs that the economy is turning around, there are just as many signs that we have work to do. I believe the top priority for any elected official right now is getting this economy moving again. As we all know, it is still a very tough environment for small businesses."
- Protecting Taxpayers
- Excerpt: "A lean and efficient government is my ultimate goal. Taxpayers expect smart use of their dollars and full funding of the programs government should provide. I believe in the common sense use of our revenue dollars and job creation rather than increasing taxes."
- Excerpt: "I believe many of the key solutions to the challenges our community faces are rooted in education. Our newest education legislation has promise but needs work. Our students and parents need a voice in this process. We must improve the quality of education for students and address each child's needs individually, not as a mass."

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.
- Legislators are scored on their votes for or against CCF's position.

- Legislators are scored on their stances on their "work to support and advance the UW and higher education."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on environmental protection issues.
