Berg knows how to get job doneAs a student at North Dakota State University and a political advocate, I must point out that, without a doubt, Rick Berg is the political figure North Dakota needs.
Recently, Berg was endorsed by Minot Mayor Curt Zimbelman, stemming from Berg’s great efforts with the flood relief and how he fought for our state’s rights against the federal government during an important time in this state. Without his support, millions in flood-relief funding could have been in jeopardy, setting Minot back even further from recovery. If that doesn’t spark our support, then what will?
Not only did Berg defend our rights but he stuck his neck out to help us through a state disaster, something that Heidi Heitkamp has not done for us. She has been on the same agenda as President Barack Obama and the Democratic Party – trying to run our country with policies that have been proven not to work. We cannot ruin the economic power and stability that we are fortunate to have with these policies.
Do the right thing and vote for a proven leader who has the right priorities for a great state like North Dakota, which is flourishing and growing more than we could have ever hoped for.
