FARGO, N.D. (KVRR) — North Dakota Commerce Commission James Leiman is stepping down.

Leiman was appointed commissioner in March 2021 by Gov. Doug Burgum and previously served as the director of Economic Development and Finance.

He also previously served as the city administrator in Ada, Minnesota.

Leiman says he will remain in Fargo.
