Nutting's top priorities include making Des Moines friendly to local businesses, supporting the city's development, and increasing police funding. Nutting has supported the Des Moines Creek Business Park and the controversial Marina redevelopment, and would work on further supporting growth downtown, at the waterfront, and in the ferry system. He has also been heavily involved in police-citizen relationship-building events, and is proud of adding more police officers and substation locations to the police department.
Nutting was on the council in 2015 when they voted to restrict churches who were sheltering people experiencing homelessness in Des Moines. His focus on policies that favor businesses and wealthy yacht owners indicate that he may not be the most progressive choice.
