Campaign themes

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

Public Education

  • Excerpt:"Each part of the system must provide a step to the next level. K-12 must be well supported by the State. Post high school training must be local and affordable. A well educated work force is required by local businesses that are the backbone of our northern area."

Middle Class

  • Excerpt:"These people provide services we all use everyday. The electricity, phone, maintaining road in the summer and plowing snow in the winter, and enforce our law. We must all support living wages for these people to support their families and plan for their own retirement."

Elderly, Disabled and Veterans

  • Excerpt:"It is the duty of all moral people to support the disabled people, the elderly in need and our veterans in need. Minnesota has been a leader in this area for years. But the budget shortfalls have made these people targets for reduction in services they so desperately need."

Constitutional Amendments

  • Excerpt:"Our constitution lays out the principles that the citizens will support, defend, or even fight and die for. Adding items that are in state law or are designed to make the constitution discriminate against it's citizens should not be made a part of our constitution."
