Leutheuser's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
Seek creative and common sense solutions
- Excerpt: "In business as well as in community service, I have demonstrated the temperament to gain the respect of people of all viewpoints and from all walks of life. I will be able to step into the work at hand in the legislature on “day one”, protecting our shared values while advancing common sense solutions."
Encourage economic growth and job creation
- Excerpt: " Now is the time to continue and refine those policies that will attract and retain job providers. Because only more jobs can enhance our tax base, better fund our schools, infrastructure needs, and help us fulfill our promise to seniors and to our future generations, who deserve a chance to grow up and find good jobs right here in Michigan -- once one of the most prosperous states in the nation."
Help students, parents and teachers succeed
- Excerpt: "All three have the same goal, really. We can help them succeed if we give our students safe environments, worthy material to learn and high expectations that they will do so. Parents will be our partners when we respect that they want the best for their children -- and when they take on the responsibility themselves that is needed to make that possible."
Fund road repairs with fairness and accountability
- Excerpt: "The bottom line: Our infrastructure was built generations ago during a period of prosperity, and needs to be rebuilt during a time when more and more state resources are going elsewhere. Another fact: Further delays will only make our costs increase. So restoration must begin quickly, but deliberately, so as to be a fair as possible."
Keep agriculture strong
- Excerpt: "Perhaps no other industry better displays the strength of our great state and people. Resilient, adaptive, open for new ideas while always honoring timeless virtues, agriculture is the foundation. It provides jobs that can’t be shipped away and the commerce that drives the entire economy. We need to be sure our hard-working Ag producers are able to compete fairly in the marketplace and their operations are not hamstrung by harmful policies."
