Forsythe listed the following themes on his campaign website:
- The LLC Tax
- Excerpt: "I oppose the “LLC Tax” which is essentially an income tax on small businesses. With record unemployment, there could be no worse time for this tax. To grow our way out of the economic downturn, we must lower taxes, not raise them."
- Excerpt: "I believe that parents and teachers know what is best for educating children. Kids are educated most effectively when control over the education is as close to home as possible. I will fight to empower parents and teachers, and prevent the centralization of control of our schools in Concord and in Washington."
Forsythe and his wife, Susan, have two children.
