DOUG BURGUM

After spending more than $3.2 million on political donations during the 2020 election cycle, campaign finance records filed last week indicate Republican Gov. Doug Burgum is making moves to be a major political donor again in 2022.
Along with Burgum were Maj. Gen. Al Dohrmann, adjutant general of the North Dakota National Guard and director of the state Department of Emergency Services; North Dakota Homeland Security Director Darin Hanson and Department of Water Resources Director Andrea Travnicek.
Applied Blockchain hosted a ribbon-cutting ceremony Thursday, May 5, for its hosting facility that is located about 7 miles north of Jamestown near the substation owned by Otter Tail Power Co.
Gov. Doug Burgum told state agency heads on Thursday to base their 2023-25 budget requests on the appropriations lawmakers approved for the current budget cycle. In previous years, Burgum asked agencies to find potential cuts in their budget requests amid harsher economic conditions.
