North Dakota’s Governor-Elect Gets Married
North Dakota governor-elect Doug Burgum is a married man.
Burgum announced on Facebook that he recently got married to Kathryn Helgaas in a small ceremony with immediate family.
The incoming governor is setting his sights on revitalizing the downtown areas of communities around the state.
The Republican is set to take office on Thursday.
Burgum says his Main Street Initiative can attract people for tech jobs and complement a state economy largely dependent on oil and agriculture.
Some people are skeptical about whether it could help the smaller communities.
