Fairfield calls out Al Jaeger on his wasteful spending

(FARGO, ND)—North Dakota Democratic-NPL Secretary of State candidate April Fairfield held a press conference today criticizing Secretary of State Al Jaeger’s continued pattern of wasteful spending.

“Twenty-two years ago my opponent was elected Secretary of State on a promise to end wasteful spending. Today, he has overspent millions more than projected in a failed attempt to update the office’s technology. He will likely spend millions more to complete the first phase of a project, that was suppose to have been completed in 2008.

“After twenty-two years in …

Astrup’s “Respect the Taxpayer” Plan simplifies taxes, provides more than $1.1 billion in relief

Jason Astrup, the Democratic-NPL endorsed candidate for Tax Commissioner, called on the North Dakota Legislature to enact income tax and property tax relief to help ease the tax burden on North Dakota families and small businesses.

N.D. Democratic-NPL Party Chairman Bob Valeu on Forum Poll: “Forum Failed”
