(Fargo, ND) -- The New American Community Organizer for the North Dakota Democratic NPL is running for state representative in Fargo's District 10.
"You know I came to Fargo when I didn't know much of English and went to school and in between I've worked in everything you can imagine. I worked in group homes taking care of our elders, I worked in schools with students who are at risk of dropping out," said Hamida Dakane.
Dakane is running for public office for the first time. She is an appointee to the Fargo Human Rights Commission. The issues she wants to focus on, if elected, include Head Start, wages, workforce, and housing. She is one of two democrats along with two republicans running to represent District 10.
Dakane is a graduate of NDSU and has a Master's degree in Public Administration from University of Mary.
