On his official website, Mathieson lists three major issues: economy, education, and public safety.
- Economy - Richmond should be "cutting its own operating costs and cutting taxes for middle class families to help get through this recession."
- Education - "We need to do all we can to protect education funding because education is the best way to safeguard our economic future and keep us competitive."
- Public safety - "I have passed laws cracking down on sexual predators and fought for good wages and proper public safety funding levels from Richmond for those who protect our community."
