West Fargo School Board President will resign to focus on new role

(West Fargo, ND) -- Jim Jonas, the newly elected republican State Representative for West Fargo District 13 is preparing to serve in Bismarck. 

"Austin Schauer and I met with some senior citizens about two weeks ago to hear their concerns. Then I informally met with Sheriff Jesse Jahner and Fire Chief Dan Fuller, and Chief Otterness from West Fargo, because one of the top priorities is public safety," said Jonas. 

Jonas says as part of transitioning to serving at the state level, he will step down as President of the West Fargo School Board. However, he will continue serving as a regular board member. Jonas is also on the West Fargo Educational Foundation board of directors. He says that group is working on a capital improvement project to raise $2.5 million to support educators and students.
