Irwin's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt: "If elected, I will propose energy saving measures that will reduce pollution and save money. I will fight to give citizens the right to know what is in the products we buy; and I will hold polluters accountable, making them clean up their act with a combination of incentives for pollution prevention and penalties for poisoning our air and water."
- Excerpt: "I believe that this is the main reason why Ann Arbor has weathered our current economic climate better than our neighbors. Ann Arbor is an education community and smart people are a competitive advantage that we would be wise to cultivate."
- Excerpt: "Finally, we all make a difference in our local economy every day. Each dollar we spend is like a vote and when we buy locally  it’s like voting for Ann Arbor to be more economically vibrant."
- Excerpt: "I am committed to the continuing struggle for human rights. I am proud to be part of a community that shares these values and I believe that Ann Arbor has an opportunity and an obligation to represent these concerns aggressively in Lansing."
