Gamache's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "I want to hear from all of you- democrat, independent, republican, any school of thought. Let’s create a strong, vibrant community by sharing all of our stories and beliefs."
- Excerpt: "Small businesses are key in a thriving economy. Over the last two years, new taxes, fees, and regulations have forced companies to leave Colorado and left broken, jobless families behind. Standing for our families and cultivating a business- and job-friendly Colorado must be the top priority."
- Excerpt: "Competition creates the best educational innovations. When teachers and parents participate together in school program decisions, students win. I’ll work to ensure that education monies “for the kid’ s” make it into the classrooms with kids and teachers. Colorado families deserve to see the detailed return on investment for their education dollars; transparency is vital to creating a better education system for our children."
Promote Responsible Energy
- Excerpt: "Energy booms in North Dakota and Texas have led these states to some of the lowest unemployment rates in the country. Colorado has the natural resources, workforce, and pioneering spirit to achieve even greater milestones in this industry. Establishing a task force to study the environmental effects of fracking and to make an educated and beneficial decision for our state, our families, and our environment is an opportunity that cannot be missed."
Promote Common Values
- Excerpt: "Caring for those in need and building a community in which everyone from the least to the most fortunate has an opportunity to live out their American Dream. This is best achieved through lower taxes, efficient governing policies, and protection of our individual responsibilities, rights and freedom."
