We Believe...

  • North Dakota Progressive Coalition Logo
    North Dakota is a wonderful place to live. People leave because they can't make a decent living here. That can change.
  • Communities and what's good for people are more important than private gains for a few.
  • Effective public solutions are based on the priorities of the people will live with them.
  • The marketplace is NOT a god.
  • Public policies must use public resources for the public good.
  • Community solutions should leave no one out - we all do better when we all do better.
  • The people who live and work in their communities must have control over their own economic destiny.
  • Decision-making must involve all people.

He says... North Dakotans "live in the coolest state in the country" with the possible exeption to his home state... that "the progressives of North Dakota, who trace their roots to the fabulous Non-Partisan League, have proven their wisdom again and again.
