On his website, Carr outlines several "Big Picture Issues" that work towards a vision of "Creating an environment where everyone benefits." They are:
- 1. Economic Prosperity: Attract (aka STEAL BUSINESSES) from other states by creating a 'business friendly' environment through Taxation Reform and Sensible Regulation Reform.
- 2. Education Strength: Prioritize budgets to ensure fiscal sustainability for public schools (K-12) and focused initiatives to promote Oregon's world class higher education facilities.
- 3. Government Spending: Develop a path to eliminate wasteful programs that take money away from Education, Public Safety, & Economic Development.
- 4. PERS (Public Employees Retirement System) Reform: Stop the debilitating effect of state and local government being strapped and strangled by PERS requirements.
- 5. Focus on Job Creation: Increase the number of people who will benefit from Oregon's Economic Prosperity through focused efforts to attract Job Creating business development.
- 6. Environmental Stewardship: Sensible solutions to create jobs without putting the environment at risk. I believe we can have both at the same time as long as we work together.
