On his campaign website, Guan lists five issues he is concerned about. They are:
- Excerpt: "The best role for government is to foster a favorable business environment. That is why Garry is staunchly in favor of lowering tax burdens and lessening bureaucratic red tape."
- Excerpt: "Garry favors a new formula, to be worked out with teachers' involvement, that will focus on the individual teacher's education and commitment. Moreover, Garry vows to work to overhaul the current furlough system."
- Fiscal Responsibility/Smaller Government
- Excerpt: "Garry is working to identify exactly which government programs and departments fit in with government's core mission, and which have become an unnecessary burden to taxpayers."
- Property Rights
- Excerpt: "Home ownership was a vital component of The American Dream. The mortgage criswas and decline in property values have hit home owners hard. They should not be hit yet again by higher property taxes as governments try to make up for education short falls."
- Engage and Empower
- Excerpt: "Garry wants your feedback on ways to make Georgia politics both transparent and all-inclusive. Together, we will improve voter turnout and citizen participation."
