Taylor's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- State Revenue and Spending
- Excerpt: "Educational funding too has reached a critical point. Voters have repeatedly made it clear that they will not put up with the current trend of lower enrollment and increasing costs. Modifications to Vermont's educational system have been in the works for several years and may well come to fruition during this session…I want to work on these issues. I want to take part in the discussion, listen to the alternatives, consider their merits, question the experts and make the decisions that will sustain Vermont’s fiscal health."
- Social Challenges
- Excerpt: "Though it is easy to measure the cost of Vermont’s social services it is much harder to measure the benefits: reduced crime, increased productivity, economic growth, lower health care costs and improved general well-being. However, these measurements must be made and the costs justified in order for successful programs to continue and failing programs cut."
- Environmental Concerns
- Excerpt: "Vermont's natural resources are her greatest asset. They have withstood many of the tests of time. They must continue to be protected and in some cases restored. We must make the lifestyle changes and financial commitments necessary to clean up the waters of Lake Champlain and her watershed (both are the source of drinking water for a large portion of Vermont’s citizens). Already well-known and successful resource management practices must be encouraged through education and incentives."
