State Representative Kathy Hogan to seek second term

(FARGO, ND) – State Representative Kathy Hogan (Democratic – Fargo), announced today that she will be seeking re-election to the State House of Representatives from District 21.

Representative Hogan released the following statement:

“I have been honored to represent central Fargo in the North Dakota House for the past four years.

“North Dakota is experiencing exciting growth and opportunity. Encouraging effective and wise management of both our natural and human resources has never been more complex and challenging. As many North Dakotans are benefiting from these changes there are many who are facing emerging issues. We need to recognize the new difficulties: seniors who can no longer afford housing, parents who can’t find or afford child care, overcrowded schools and jails, law enforcement confronted with crimes like human trafficking, and crumbling infrastructure. Maintaining a good quality of life, including protecting the environment for our grandchildren’s children invites us to ask difficult questions and seek balanced solutions.

“As a member of the Judiciary and Political Subdivision Committees during the 2013 session we studied many of these emerging issues. We are only beginning to understand the new reality of North Dakota and finding new answers. I have decided to seek re-election in order to focus on addressing these challenges along with a personal commitment to improve behavioral health care in our state.

“North Dakota needs to assure that mental health services for adults and children and substance abuse services are accessible and affordable for everyone. It’s an issue that doesn’t get the attention it deserves yet it impacts all of us. I want to lead an effort at tackling this issue.” (END)
