BISMARCK, N.D. (JULY 26, 2021) – Gov. Doug Burgum today appointed North Dakota Parks and Recreation Director Andrea Travnicek to lead the state’s Department of Water Resources, subject to approval by a majority of the members of the State Water Commission on Friday, July 30. The governor also appointed eight members to the State Water Commission with broad experience in water supply, flood protection, engineering and other water issues.
BISMARCK – Today, Perrie Schafer, Chairman of the North Dakota Republican Party, issued the following statement in response to the initiation of a recall petition against Representative Dwight Kiefert:
“This frivolous and unserious effort is a distraction from the important work that we are undertaking as a Party. Although I believe that we ought to have vigorous debate as a Party, I also believe that this is a wholly unproductive way to express our differences. We stand behind Rep. Dwight Kiefert.”
