Standing with working families

Protests are really impeding progress and safety
Oil and gas development has led to a revitalization of rural North Dakota, bringing new businesses to the region, more jobs and employees, and more families. Although the economic benefits continue to be appreciated, this rapid growth also led to a strain on our state's aging infrastructure...

The Prairie is where I grew up. The land has taught me many lessons about myself and our Earth. Summer and winter have taught me that in order to flourish we must endure times of dormancy and go within ourselves. Spring and fall give us an opportunity to appreciate regrowth and recreation....

My brother was killed while riding his bicycle in 2008. While I feel that law enforcement did their jobs, I do not feel like others in the legal system did. I cannot do anything to bring my brother back, but if I can do something to help others for the future and ensure that people...
