Grindberg, who's been a Fargo city commissioner and North Dakota lawmaker, secured a seat on the five-member commission by defeating Ben Hanson in the Nov. 8 general election.

Grindberg received 50.32% of the vote and Hanson got 49.05%. Incumbent Rick Steen did not seek reelection.


Grindberg will represent the county's District 2, which covers much of south Fargo east of Interstate 29.

Duane Breitling, elected to the commission in 2018, was reelected in an uncontested race after candidate Adam Martin dropped out. Breitling represents District 4, which includes much of West Fargo.

The commission holds public meetings the first and third Mondays of each month at 3:30 p.m. Commissioners serve four-year terms.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
