Jamestown tourism foundation gets leader

JAMESTOWN, N.D. – The new executive director of the Buffalo City Tourism Foundation in Jamestown says the biggest challenge in his new job will be getting people to look beyond their preconceived notions about North Dakota.

Searle Swedlund said getting the word out about what Jamestown and North Dakota offer travelers is the biggest challenge in his new job.

Swedlund took over as executive director of the Buffalo City Tourism Foundation last Monday. He replaced Nina Sneider, who retired after nine years in the position.

Swedlund says a new foundation website will make it easier for people around the country to understand what Jamestown and North Dakota can offer, such as outdoor activities.
