Aylward's website highlights the following campaign themes:
Reviving our economy
- Excerpt:"Private investment in our economy should be promoted and rewarded. Government should not be the adversary of business."
- Excerpt:"In short, Massachusetts' revenue woes are caused because our tax code discourages economic activity and growth. By lowering taxes we can stimulate job creation, thus expanding the base."
- Excerpt:"Like all government programs, too much money is wasted on top-heavy administrative bureaucracy. So we need to start thinking about comprehensive education reform in Commonwealth. Everything needs to be put on the table in this discussion, including teacher testing, as well as incentives for performance both at the school and classroom level."
- Excerpt:"Too often those who have been rejected at the ballot box by voters are quickly provided with a golden parachute. They wind up working for some state agency or "independent authority" at a very handsome salary. This practice must stop."
- Excerpt:"Those municipalities, which declare themselves sanctuary cities, should be denied all forms of local aid. Legislation should be passed making it illegal for municipalities to declare themselves sanctuary cities."
