Issues

Campaign themes

Lehrke's website highlights the following campaign themes:[1]

Job Creation

  • Excerpt:"It is important to reduce excessive government regulations so we can attract businesses to invest in Minnesota and grow jobs for Minnesotans."

Fiscal Responsibility

  • Excerpt:"While balancing the state budget is far more complex than balancing your own check book, I plan on bringing that same philosophy to St. Paul. I will not govern with the mindset that I have a blank checkbook. These are hard earned tax dollars and should be treated accordingly."

Education

  • Excerpt:"I will work to fight through the crippling gridlock on reform that special interest has placed on education policy in Minnesota. I will support creative solutions that will make our schools better, while at the same time saving tax payers money."
