We need to work to guarantee that North Dakota remains a welcoming place for families and businesses.

Meet Shannon

Many have already asked "Why would you want to run?" My answer is simple, I want to ensure North Dakota remains a national economic leader, and a place where families thrive. As a teenager, there was never an assumption that you would stay and live in Fargo. If you want to have a good job, if you wanted to have great experiences, you would most likely need to move to the Twin Cities, or another large city. When I graduated, the economic climate in North Dakota was average at best, but the tide was shifting. As I started to come home from college I would notice more buildings being built, more stores and restaurants entering the Fargo market and I thought, "Where was all of this when I lived here?"

I am focused on growing a vibrant economy throughout North Dakota and guaranteeing the government runs effectively and efficiently, which means controlling spending, reducing taxes, eliminating harmful regulations and operating under a balanced budget.
I am committed to serving the people of District 46, and advancing the interests of all North Dakotans, because I want to continue the great progress North Dakota has seen in the last twenty years. Our economy is the envy of the nation and we need to work diligently to make sure that our businesses and families have all of the resources necessary to continue to thrive.

Now, as a businesswoman, I see the effect that not enough skilled workers is having on our economy. Despite the fact that businesses want to grow, they are being constricted by the lack of a suitable workforce.
