“It seems we cannot turn on the radio or TV, open a newspaper or visit with a neighbor without hearing about the remarkable changes happening all across North Dakota” says Paul Ronningen, State Director for the Children’s Defense Fund and chairman of NDESPA.

“And while many community meetings are being held concerning these changes, little has been done to successfully engage local people in dialogue or ask people to share their experience in this new economy.  We want to hear about real day to day experiences, creative ideas for solutions and thoughts on how to improve the public policies necessary to make a real difference for people in our community,” added Ronningen.
