On his campaign website, Vazquez highlights three main issues of his campaign:
- Education Reform: "Many public school systems are underfunded, and worse, focused on social issues versus focusing on teaching fundamentals such as; reading, writing, math and logic, and the sciences. Our community needs students who can read and write in order to provide for their future families and contribute to the betterment of our community."
- Economic Development: " Mandates, duplicate services, programs, and systems have become an unnecessary burden on hard-working taxpayers as well as a burden to grassroots efforts seeking to better our community. If we reduce or outright eliminate mandates and duplicated services, programs, and systems the savings can then be passed on to taxpayers and grassroots efforts serving those in need within our community."
- Protecting Employees: "Overregulation and the mishandling of taxpayer dollars have placed both public & private employee benefits and pensions in harm’s way. It is the belief of many that those who work hard should be rewarded fair and equitably. No public or private employee should have to worry about their benefits and pensions because some of our elected officials think it is ok to not listen to their constituents and overregulate or mishandle taxpayer dollars."
