Boyne's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Growing our Economy and Creating Jobs
- Excerpt: "I am a true fiscal conservative, and I am committed to reducing the cost and size of state government while increasing economic opportunity and quality of life for all Texas residents."
- Excerpt: "I strongly oppose Obamacare, and I will fight against its implementation in Texas. I have been a vocal opponent of Obamacare since it was first proposed, and expressed my opposition at both the state and national levels. I will oppose any efforts to expand Medicaid in our state."
Utilizing our Energy Resources
- Excerpt: "I will vigorously oppose any efforts by the Obama administration to interfere with the oil and gas production that is fueling our nation and driving our Texas economy."
Providing a Quality Education to our Children
- Excerpt: "I supported HB5, the significant and comprehensive public education bill that recently passed. This bill will help prepare a workforce that is ready to meet the needs of Texas business, but it’s not enough. We must get rid of CSCOPE and make sure we are instilling American values in our children."
Defending our 2nd Amendment Freedoms
- Excerpt: "I will stand strong in defending our constitutionally guaranteed right to keep, own and bear arms. I have been fighting in favor of this right as is clearly explained in our Constitution, and I will support campus carry and open carry laws. I will fight to make it easier for law-abiding Texans to obtain and maintain their CHL licenses, including lowering or eliminating the cost of obtaining their licenses."
In an email submission to Ballotpedia on July 23, 2014, Boyne explained her political philosophy:
FIRST- and most importantly, I believe that to be a State Representative is more than just a title. I believe it carries with it the sacred responsibility truly to represent the values of the people of District 102 and Texas and to carry those values to Austin. I believe it means being a strong voice in our state capitol in District 102’s defense. I will be there for you and I will listen to you. I am a proven servant leader and I want to serve YOU!
SECOND- House District 102 is known as a Majority/Minority district. It is also a SWING district. In order for Republicans to hold the seat in the General Election in 2014, we must elect someone who can bring all voters to the polls on our behalf. The Democrats are working very hard to turn Texas from a Red state to a Blue state by pumping millions of dollars into our state, and right here in Dallas County. They want to elect Wendy Davis as our next Governor and put Texas in play in the next Presidential election. Battleground Texas has been registering new voters who feel disengaged and alienated from the Republican Party. Thousands of new voters in our district will show up in the general election and most of them will not vote for any of my opponents as they feel disengaged with them. We need a Republican nominee who CAN win the GENERAL election, someone who is a PROVEN defender of conservative values, a servant- leader with experience listening and communicating with the DIVERSE population of our district, someone committed to promises made to the constituents. This is very serious. The Texas House Seat is a position in which to act responsibly and with accountability. Besides being the most conservative candidate for the Republican primary, I am also a freedom-loving Hispanic American who will defend the constitution, protect our liberties, keep government from growing, keep taxes low and will meet frequently with my constituents. I will help strengthen families, secure our border, and help assure others that they, too, can live the American dream. If I am elected I will become the SECOND Hispanic woman in Texas’ History serving as a Republican in the Texas House and the only one who can communicate and debate issues in English and Spanish.
THIRD- I not only want to win the District 102 House seat, I want to help build and strengthen the Republican Party in Texas so that we can remain the majority party for many years to come. We also can, once again, become the majority party across our great country. I have the strong support of my husband and family . Texas Legislative processes are NOT new to me. I am pro- business and pro jobs. The majority of the people who are endorsing me have known me for MANY years. I have already been supporting our conservative legislators in the 80th, 81st, 82nd, and 83rd Texas legislative sessions INCLUDING the special sessions. I am NOT new in Texas, NOT new in the district and NOT a new face in the party and conservative circles. Activism is NOT Politics is Leadership. We need experience and leadership in the house of representatives in Texas, not politics.
FOURTH- My voting record as a citizen and my decades of service shows my conservative Republican views. I have expressed and fought for OUR conservative values, in English and in Spanish, on National TV, radio, and other media on a daily basis. I have debated Texas liberals MANY times including State Representatives Rafael Anchia, Jessica Farrar, Roberto Alonzo, Domingo Garcia, etc. At a national level, I have debated liberal US Congressmen Luis Gutierrez and Joe Garcia, among others. I have debated against Obamacare, against growth of government, and against rising taxes. I fought to pass Photo Voter ID in Texas and confronted Attorney General Eric Holder when he came to our state to tell us how to run Texas elections. I testified before the city council of Dallas on redistricting and on defending photo ID. I testified before the State Board of Education to protect our children’s education. I am PRO LIFE and have fought for the right to life for the last THIRTY YEARS, been a Crisis Pregnancy counselor, participating at every level of pro life legislation, debated standing for LIFE. I testified for the Sonogram Bill, the HB 2 Bill which ends abortions in Texas at 20 weeks and creates safer clinical conditions for women. I have stood strong for 2nd Constitutional Amendment rights as well as against the IRS abuses to non-profit organizations. I have testified on the right of the Texas legislature, not liberal judges, to determine redistricting in our state. I am the only candidate in this race who recently signed a pledge to not to raise taxes.
FIFTH- I have been out there with you and for you. I have been helping and volunteering for conservatives, serving in elections, block walking, giving Constitutions, being a spokesperson, etc. I was a National Delegate At-Large at the last two Republican National Conventions, a Delegate at the last three Republican State Conventions. I was invited to be a speaker at the Republican State Convention in 2010 and at hundreds of conservative events and TEA Parties for several years. We need a new representative who has been fighting for you, advocating for conservative legislation in TEXAS, and has expressed interest in you BEFORE this race, who can deliver the message EFFECTIVELY, who serves with transparency, who has been in Texas and interacting with Texans and who is not seeking to climb up political ladders.
FINALLY- I am committed to represent you and to fulfill my promises with integrity and accountability. I emigrated legally from Mexico to the United States and graduated from Criswell College in Dallas. I have been married for 26 years to Dr. Daryl Boyne. He works as a project manager at a small engineering company involved in oil and gas. He is a graduate of Texas A&M and also an ordained minister who holds two seminary degrees from Dallas Theological Seminary. We are the proud parents of two outstanding sons. We will be empty nesters by General Election and I will be ready to serve you FULL TIME. Over 20 years ago, I proudly became an American citizen, and have been an active Republican ever since. My husband grew up in the area. As a family, we have lived in this district for eleven years, and then we served as missionaries for ten years, returning every summer to Dallas to spend time with the constituents. We returned to live permanently in Texas in 2006 and moved back to the district in 2011. We are members of Watermark Church and believe in the importance of our personal walk with Christ. I am counting on your support. With God’s help, I look forward to serving you in Austin.
