Rogers' website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "However, much of Michigan’s unemployment rate is not due to the lack of job opportunities; it is due to the mismatch of skills for our current graduates. There are many skilled technical job openings going unfilled in our state because of the lack of qualified applicants. As a result, this is partly why jobs and education are such an important issues to me."
- Excerpt: "Being a teacher of 32 years, education is a very important issue to me. I believe Michigan needs someone with a solid background in education in the legislature to help reform our educational system for the 21st century. I believe that Michigan needs a school curriculum and a qualified teaching force for the 21st century that will prepare our students to meet the challenges of a 21st century global economy."
- Excerpt: "I believe Michigan’s tax structure is in need of a major reform. I believe we need to consolidate our current tax system and develop a balanced system that encourages economic growth but provides the dependable revenue streams that can ensure the reliable state and local governmental services that our citizens deserve."
Transparency in Government and Respecting the Will of the People
- Excerpt: "I believe we need a state legislature that is forthright and doesn’t misuse the state constitution to play games with legislation to subvert the will of the people."
