Roen's campaign website listed the following issues:[1]

  • Military & Veterans
Excerpt: "I will commit myself to confront the idea that our military and our veterans should be the bill payer for our elected official’s irresponsibility. For me, that is a reprehensible example of expediency."
  • Jobs & the Economy
Excerpt: "America is at a crossroads and I am committed to taking every possible step to spur job creation and get El Paso’s economy back on track so that El Pasoans can do what they do best: create, innovate and lead."
  • Out of Control Gas Prices
Excerpt: "The price of gasoline in El Paso has doubled in the past three years. Today’s high gas and energy prices are entirely a function of bad government policies."
  • Rampant Public Corruption
Excerpt: "There doesn’t seem to be an end to the number of El Paso’s past and present prominent elected officials and one-time respected private businessmen who have engaged in public corruption."
  • Border Security
Excerpt: "Border security is a national defense issue and affects the lives of the citizens of El Paso daily."
