Fargo's District 27 house representative wants to continue supporting business and growth

(Fargo, ND) -- The incumbent house representative for Fargo's District 27 wants to support business and growth if he wins election in November. 

"I want us to be a pro-business state. I want us to be seen as one of the most attractive states for people to not only come and work but also one of the most attractive states in the country for people to come and start a business or build their business," said Greg Stemen. 

The republican was appointed to the seat in 2021 to replace Thomas Beetle, who was elected state treasurer. Stemen grew up in North Dakota, and returned to the state three years ago after moving away. His previous experience includes serving on the the State Board of Higher Education. He is one of two republicans and two democrats seeking two seats representing the district.

"It's an honor to go to work for the citizens of North Dakota and if there is a way that I can possibly impact the growth in this state, if there is a way that I can positively impact additional economic development outside of ag and energy, I want to be a part of that," said Stemen.
