Cities Need for Better Communication 

MINOT – Scott Louser announced Tuesday afternoon that he will be running for a position on the Minot School Board in the June election. 

“I’m excited to be on the ballot. I’ve got a lot invested, both as a graduate of Minot High and a parent in the system.” 

Louser, a Republican member of the North Dakota House of Representatives, District 5, is a realtor and owner of NextHome Legendary Properties. He has served in the House since 2011 and will continue to do so if successful in his bid for school board. 

The biggest issue facing MPS presently, said Louser, is a budget deficit of $6 million. 

“When you have $120 million you can’t spend $125-126 million. I don’t think there should be deficit spending,” said Louser. “Think of your own household budget. The last thing to dip into should be a credit card.” 

Louser added that it has been “a little bit frustrating to watch the lack of communication” from the school board and that there’s “lot of expense that really hasn’t been discussed publicly.” 

As to doing both school board and legislative duties, Louser noted that two other legislators in the state, one from West Fargo and one from Stanley, are doing the same thing. 

Three, four-year term seats are up for grabs in the June election. Board members Jim Rostad, Bonny Berryman, and Mike Gessner are all completing four-year terms. The deadline for candidates to apply for the school board election is April 8.
