Bustamante's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "JOBS must be a priority. As State Representative, I will work to expand Enterprise Zones and continue to support such policies that create incentives for small businesses to create JOBS."
- Excerpt: "Unfortunately, the Republican-controlled legislature has made reckless cuts to education & eliminated all-day Kindergarten. We need forward thinking leaders who understand that we must prepare our children to enter a global workforce. That’s why, as State Representative, I helped pass all-day Kindergarten and invested in our universities. "
