Roselius' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "Our city offers a wide variety of educational options – from neighborhood, charter, and magnet schools, to distance learning programs. With choices like these, I cannot support vouchers that grab $100 million out of our public classrooms, from an already strained budget."
High Interior Energy Costs
- Excerpt: "We need more energy production, expanded investment in efficiency, and other solutions that save us money."
- Excerpt: "I support our Constitution and a nonpartisan judiciary that makes decisions based on the law, not on politics."
- Excerpt: "Our state needs a prioritized, balanced budget that supports education, our workforce, infrastructure, and the needs of Alaskans first."
- Excerpt: "This expansion of Medicaid would generate an economic benefit to the state, while helping women in need of pre-natal and post-natal care."
