Boyle's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- Excerpt:"Over the course of my first term, I have promoted disabled persons becoming entrepreneurs and fought against tax breaks for multi-billion dollar natural gas companies and other elite corporations. We need more policies geared towards the creation and the advancement of family sustaining jobs."
- Excerpt:"The most contentious battle within my term was fighting against draconian budget cuts that would shortchange our youth. Those same cuts were not only aimed at our kindergartners but at college students as well. I, with my colleagues, ensured that state related schools like Temple University were equipped to keep tuition at competitive and affordable rates."
Crime & Safety
- Excerpt:"We can also improve public safety by re-examining the laws that the authorities enforce. In the wake of the Penn State scandal, I discovered that the laws within the Commonwealth were not only antiquated but allowed for the abuse of children to continue. This is why I introduced a bill that mandated those who care for children, report any/all sexual abuse to the authorities rather than just their superiors."
- Excerpt:"Over this past summer we fought to block a Methadone clinic from coming to Frankford Avenue. I have also fought ardently against negligent property owners, seeking to curtail the practice and bring accountability to those who rent to our residents."
