MacEwen's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "This district has not had any leadership when it comes to promoting, retaining, or attracting businesses. We need to look at the fairness of the uniform application of the B & O Tax, changing state law so that local jurisdictions can create TIF districts, and elect people that create and not pontificate."
- Excerpt: "Throwing money at the problem does not equate to success for students. Competition in the form of charter schools, vouchers, and measurable results for students, teachers, and administrators will be a good start."
- Reform State Government
- Excerpt: "If it can be done at the same quality level or better at a lower price outside the state walls of Olympia, then the state should not be involved.[ ]With Republican leadership in the State House we can balance the budget on time without special session after special session."

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.
Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.
Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
- Legislators are scored on their votes for or against CCF's position.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on "small business interests."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on pro-choice issues.
- Legislators are scored on their stances on their "work to support and advance the UW and higher education."
- Legislators are scored on their stances on environmental protection issues.
