What question do you wish we’d asked, and what is your answer?

What was my path from a veterinarian to wanting to run for governor?
Basically, I learned from opening my businesses in Killdeer and Dickinson along with my international nonprofit that the way to reduce animal suffering is to elevate the human condition of the communities. Three quickest, most practical/sustainable way to do that is through food security, vocational skills/education development, small business development and access to health providers.
