FARGO – Pamela Anderson announced that she will seek the North Dakota Democratic-NPL Party endorsement for State Representative in District 41.

Anderson is retired with more than 30 years of executive experience in the banking industry. During her career, she worked for US Bank and Wells Fargo. Anderson retired from Wells Fargo in 2005 as a senior vice president.

“Fargo has been my home for the last 40 years. My late husband, Wayne, and I raised our three children and built our lives here. Our community and state are growing. Our needs are changing. I believe that my background in economics and banking, combined with my involvement in the community, allow me to better represent the needs and wishes of the people of District 41," Anderson said in a release.

"District 41’s current representation is out of touch with these needs. Al Carlson and Bette Grande have spent their current terms grandstanding. If it’s not Carlson fighting the NCAA on the Fighting Sioux logo, it’s Grande pushing blatantly unconstitutional legislation. It doesn’t take a banker to tell you that both of them have wasted over a million of our tax dollars in legal bills defending their legislation. That money would have been much better spent if invested in pre-K education, providing permanent flood protection, and reforming property taxes.

“North Dakota is in an enviable position. We have tremendous resources. My previous experience serving on two statewide commissions focused on bringing jobs to our state and studying primary and secondary education needs, gives me a perspective that allows me to work with members of both parties to make sensible investments in our future. Working together, there’s nothing we can’t do. I’m ready to make that happen.”
