Coleman's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Economic Development & Jobs
- Excerpt: "I feel it is imperative that the state continue to focus on economic development and job creation. I am excited about the opportunities that exist right here in Legislative District 16, including the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport and surrounding developments."
- Local Control
- Excerpt: "I am a firm believer in local control of government functions. As a local elected official, I have fought for government functions to be as close to the people as possible. Each level of government has a proper role and function under the U.S. Constitution and the state Constitution."
- Excerpt: "I have been an educator for over 30 years, with all of those years spent in the classroom with your children, so I bring a vast amount of knowledge and experience to this important issue. I believe that investing in the education of our children is a vital priority in our state."
- Fiscal Responsibility
- Excerpt: "The State Legislature has a Constitutional responsibility to pass a balanced state budget every year. The people of Arizona should expect their representatives to take this responsibility seriously. Recently, too many budget gimmicks and one-time fixes have been used to balance the state budget, including passing the crisis down to local governments."
- Conservative Values
- Excerpt: "I believe strongly in protecting the U.S. Constitution and the free market system. For over 30 years, I have been teaching free market economics, entrepreneurship, and small business management, as well as the Constitution and the Bill of Rights. I will fight for these principles as your State Representative."
