Zamarripa lists the following issues as campaign priorities on her official campaign website:<ref>[http://www.votejocasta.com/issues.html ''Jocasta Zamarripa Official Campaign Website,'' "Issues," accessed August 10, 2012]</ref>
 +
*'''Bipartisanship'''
 +
Excerpt: "This past November, I passed my first bill and I am very proud to be able to say that it was a bipartisan effort. Senate Bill 259 (SB 259), that creates the office of Milwaukee County Comptroller, was signed into law as 2011 Wisconsin Act 62 on November 11, 2011."
 +
*'''Budgeting & Finance'''
 +
Excerpt: "We need a budget process that is more open and honest than we’ve seen in the past. I know that in tough economic times, tough decision must be made. However, we cannot balance budgets off the backs of working families. I will continue to push for budgets that truly 'share the sacrifice'."
 +
 
 +
*'''Crime Prevention'''
 +
Excerpt: "As the State Representative of the 8th District, I will continue to work with the Milwaukee Police Department to make sure that they have the resources they need to keep our community safe. I would also like to outline clear expectations for these resources and hold the Department accountable for meeting community expectations."
 +
 
 +
*'''Health Care'''
 +
"Excerpt: "Wisconsin used to lead the nation in access to quality affordable health care. As a candidate for the Assembly in 2010, I strongly supported programs such as BadgerCare and SeniorCare."
 +
 
 +
*'''K-12 Education & Higher Education'''
 +
Excerpt: "I will work to make sure that tax dollars for education are used wisely and that any school receiving public dollars, whether it be MPS or a voucher/choice school, is meeting expectations and is held accountable; I will continue to push for more funding for our universities and technical colleges."
 +
 
 +
*'''Redistricting Issues'''
 +
Excerpt: "There must be a public voice in any redistricting process and that partisan politics must be taken out of the process."
