- Accessible, Responsive Government
- Excerpt: "Government needs to recognize that it works for the people, not the other way around."
- Role of Government
- Excerpt: "Steve believes that government intervention in the economy should be focused on penalizing fraud and preventing practices that harm people, pets and property, not in bureaucrats trying to micromanage industries."
- Excerpt: "Steve favors a solutions-focused approach to Northern Virginia’s transportation problems. This involves taking in-depth look at alternatives rather than merely throwing taxpayer dollars at a problem."
- Excerpt: "Public education should be more customer-focused, with wider school choice, wider choices of programs to meet student learning styles and pace, and an accelerated learning path for students learning English."
- Environment & Energy
- Excerpt: "Steve supports common sense, science-based protection of the environment, that balances the need for environmental protection with the need for energy independence and economic growth."
- Health Care

- Individual and Human Rights
- Excerpt: "Life is precious and should be protected from conception to natural death... A key to liberty is the right to private property whether land, possessions or funds."
- Excerpt: "Steve believes we must address the impact of illegal immigrants on Virginia employment through a market-based system."
