Herrera's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Government Transparency
- "The people of Hawaii need to know how their government is conducting business. I pledge to be transparent and urge my fellow legislators to do the same."
- Term Limits
- "I strongly believe that it is a privilege to serve in political office, not a birthright—Senators should be limited to two terms and Representatives to four terms in order to guard against cronyism and allow others to serve."
- "Hawaii needs a much better small business climate in order to create jobs, therefore, I will introduce and support legislation to reduce government costs to start a small business and provide tax credits for companies that hire new employees."
- "Hawaii’s taxpayers are buried in taxes! It is affecting the health of our families and our marriages as we struggle to pay these excessive taxes. I believe the state must do much better to manage our money and lower taxes for those who are struggling."
- Government Spending
- "Continuing our habit of undisciplined government spending will only increase the deficit between what we have and what we promised to those people who have faithfully served. I will insist that voters know exactly how much every piece of legislation will cost."
