Kyle is Invested in North Dakota

Kyle is dedicated to building community here in Grand Forks. As a small business owner, he gets what it is like to work hard to create something from the ground up. It's one of the many reasons he loves living in North Dakota.

For over 10 years, Kyle has invested his time to create opportunities for people to connect with one another. Through his coffee house, he has partnered with multiple local organizations to spotlight their missions and connect UND students to the greater community. He has hosted Pride Grand Forks for 5 years, served on the board of CVIC to reduce community violence, and is also a board member at Christus Rex Lutheran Campus ministry.

We all know how important strong leadership is so together, let's take back this ND Senate seat in 2020. 

Kyle has been endorsed by the Dem-NPL, ND Rural Voters, Equal Rights Association, the AFL-CIO, Run for Something, LGBT Victory Fund, and the National Association of Social Workers.

Priorities & Community Concerns

I'm running for State Senate and asking for your vote.  For me, politics is about creating a stronger community and solving problems for people.  I will work for you to improve the lives of North Dakotans - fighting for the quality education all children deserve, the affordable healthcare we all need, and a diverse economy that makes us strong.

Health Care

Healthy People, Strong Community

Let's face it:  today's world is proving that healthcare policy isn't just an urgent need, it is a national security concern.  We have to partner together with experts to build a system that ensures access to care when it is needed.  We need to work with businesses to create policy that helps cover workers insurance and paid leave needs without ruining the bottom line.  This is one issue where we have to drop the partisan rhetoric and figure out how to create a solution that works for everyone.

Small Business Growth

Business is our lifeblood

As a small business owner, Kyle knows how important it is for the state to invest in building infrastructure that supports the economy.  We should invest in technology that reduces the effort to run a business in North Dakota like improving the tax reporting website or laying the groundwork for gigabit internet access.  We should be creating opportunities that increase density and promotes small business growth, not just big corporations.


From Pre-K to Higher Education

North Dakota has a world class public education system and we need to continue investing in our children's future.  Ensuring all families have access not only Prekindergarten and Higher education opportunities, but also providing educational opportunities for other careers.  We should be investing in courses to teach coding, robotics, and other tech-industry needs to keep up in this fast-paced world.
