Lacey's campaign website listed the following issues:
- Excerpt: "Idaho's K-12 education system was set back substantially by the 2011 proposal of the 'Students Come First' legislation that was hastily put together and basically destroyed the rights of teachers, introduces technological elements that will be paid for by firing teachers, and many other impacts that were not adequately thought out."
- Excerpt: "Local businesses that flourish provide jobs in our community and we need to ensure that each is given a fair chance to succeed. The competitive advantage enjoyed by internet or catalog sales must be eliminated as we level the playing field and give necessary assistance to our local stores. 'Buy Pocatello' – 'Buy Idaho' needs to be the mindset of every Idahoan."
- Excerpt: "[The elderly are] one of our most vulnerable populations as incomes are fixed and medical and other expenses which come with the “golden years” are quickly outpacing the ability to pay. [Children are] another of our vulnerable segments needing someone to speak for them. Protection of good educational opportunities is a must if we wish our children to remain in Idaho during their productive lives."
