Charlie Hart

for Senate

I’m Charlie Hart, a lifelong rural Pembina resident,

4th generation farmer, an NDSU graduate with a degree

in Plant Sciences.  During my 30 years  running our family

farm I experienced droughts, floods, embargoes,

23 percent interest loan rates, low commodity prices,

but also had the satisfaction of helping feed the world

and raising my family within the farm community. 


I served on the local elevator board, school board,

Crop Improvement board, and after transitioning

out of farming became involved with

UND’s Conflict Resolution Center. 


I ran Pembina County Soil Conservation District,

conducted field assessments for Natural Resource

Conservation Service and Farm Service Agency.  In these roles I was provided an opportunity to serve landowners in NE North Dakota addressing county, state and federal agricultural concerns. 

 I joined the agriculturist team at American Crystal Sugar assisting area farmers working within the corporate structure.  I am a lifelong Joliette Township Supervisor and an active member of Fort Pembina Historical Society. I was appointed to Pembina County Job Development Authority in 2019 and serve as Treasurer for District 10 Democratic-NPL.


I believe we as a society are moving into a time of rapid change.  We need intense focus on these issues:  rural healthcare, investment in infrastructure, 

boosting our education system and achieving property tax relief.  


Simply put, I believe in grassroots democracy.  We need to put people first, instead of profit.  Working beside District residents I have gained an understanding of what is required to reset our path toward a better life and supporting communities.  My focus is on problems facing rural ND.  Elect me to ND Senate and I will work on real issues affecting our daily lives.  

Stay healthy and strong, we are North Dakotans!
