Dwight Grotberg on Budget & Economy

 


We need solid fiscal policy for coming economic expansion

Q: What problems do you think North Dakota faces today that you can address from the Senate?

A: Our economy is poised to dramatically expand. Without solid fiscal policy and new ideas to support industry, we will either miss the boat or we will be susceptible to the boom-bust cycles of the past. Agriculture faces threats from over-reaching environmentalism. Other issues are Social Security, health care, and education.

Federal support should be rarely needed

Q: What is your philosophy on government spending?

A: Washington wastes a lot of money. I have a plan to increase the support for our state that is backed up by a strong economic plan so that federal support is rarely needed. Federal transfers should be an insurance policy, not the backbone of our economy.

Claims his strength is agricultural economics

Farmer Dwight Grotberg announced his candidacy today for the Republican nomination for the U.S Senate. Who, you might ask? Grotberg was a delegate at the Republican party`s 2004 state convention. He serves as a member of the township board in Anderson County. Grotberg says his strength is agricultural economics. He farms in the town of Sanborn. Ten years ago he suffered a spinal cord injury in a farming accident that left him paralyzed from the waist down for nearly a month.
