Bond's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Economic Development and Creation of Jobs
- Excerpt: "The development and creation of sustainable jobs is crucial to our districts welfare. Creating a business friendly environment will attract cutting-edge ideas that promote alternate energy and economic stability. I believe that rewarding these socially responsible and environmentally conscious companies will ultimately produce a healthy and productive society."
- Excerpt: "The Washington Supreme Court has ruled that the legislature has failed our children. Lawmakers have deprived our students of their constitutionally protected right to a fully funded education. It is necessary for our state to reform and evolve the current curriculum to forge the tools needed to be successful. Becoming a national model for educational standards and promoting fundamental life skills will allow us to create competitive future generations in Washington State."
- Excerpt: "Our military and veteran community has made great sacrifices for the safety of our great nation. As a combat veteran I strongly support any legislation that in a responsible manner provides; increased benefits, education, and or job training to these brave men and women."
- Civil Rights
- Excerpt: "The United States Constitution and the subsequent acts of the United States Congress, provide the ground work for our civil rights in this nation. The freedom of our society should be measured by our commitment and protection of civil liberties, equality under the law, and due process."
- Excerpt: "The agriculture industry is a cornerstone of Washington State. “Productivity of crops, livestock, and fisheries need to be increased in a socially and environmentally sustainable manner”. I stand behind policies that improve safety, production, and the expansion of agricultural innovation."
- Excerpt: "Washington State workers have a reputation for being a highly skilled and paid labor force. To continue this reputation it is essential to maintain a fair and stable relationship between workers and businesses. Equality and safety in the work environment will spur economic productivity and growth, attracting new businesses to relocate to district 45 and the State of Washington."
- Energy and Environment
- Excerpt: "Pollution and depleting resources are threats to all Americans. The goal of all Washington State residents should be to leave our children a future that is brighter than what was given to us. As fuel prices continue to rise, many are faced with the decision between gas and groceries. Our dependence on foreign oil is a bad habit that Washington needs to abandon. We as a community must strive for alternative, sustainable energy that exemplifies the character and spirit of the Pacific North West."
- Excerpt: "Establishing an intelligently planned and accessible system of transportation will encourage residents to utilize alternate means of transportation. Relying on single occupancy vehicles creates rush hour style gridlock on Washington’s roads and highways. Commuters that take part in mass transportation should be rewarded not penalized for their participation. I am dedicated to making public transportation more convenient and economical for all persons around the state."
- Excerpt: "Every individual should have access to medical resources ranging from affordable insurance, education, and treatment. Healthcare is a very controversial issue throughout the State of Washington and the nation. I believe preventative healthcare education is a clear and effective tool towards lowering healthcare’s long term costs and eventually will result in an easier path towards health care reform."
- National and Border Security
- Excerpt: "The safety and wellbeing of our nation is a responsibility that Washington State and its citizens are all too familiar with. As a border state we must ensure that not only the Canadian-U.S. border is secured, but our many miles of coastline as well. Washington State must work in conjunction with federal authorities to maintain adequate coverage of our borders."
