Duggan's website highlighted the following campaign issues:[3]

  • New Jersey Jobs
  • "Lower sales and income tax rates"
  • "Cut onerous regulations and red tape that harm small business"
  • Education Funding

"Adoption and implementation of the Doherty Fair School Funding Plan being blocked by the New Jersey State Judiciary and special interests in Trenton."

  • Bill of Rights and Public Safety
  • "Abolition of the Graves Act for all law abiding New Jersey FID card holders."
  • "Introduction of a sensible and fair CCW license that does not violate either the 2nd or the 14th Amendments to our Constitution."
  • Skyrocketing Property Taxes

"Towns and communities can only function effectively if they have a vibrant private sector in which its taxpayers have disposable income to afford those taxes. When taxation begins to become unaffordable, local Government must cut services accordingly."

  • Education

"A back to basics education policy that does not cater to the large education institution complex. Restoring the authority of teachers to discipline unruly and disruptive students under strict guidelines and without the threat of punishment or litigation."
