Knudsvig to seek re-election as alderman

Minot attorney Scott Knudsvig has announced that he will seek re-election as alderman in Minot’s 5th Ward.

Knudsvig was first elected to the Minot City Council in 2006. Knudsvig is a shareholder at the Pringle & Herigstad law firm in Minot. He is a native of Alamo and graduate of the University of North Dakota School of Law.

Knudsvig is chairman of the council’s Public Works and Safety Committee. He also serves on the Airport Committee. He previously served as the chairman of the Comprehensive Plan Steering Committee and currently serves on the search committee for Minot’s new city manager.

He sees dealing with the growth resulting from this region’s expanding economy and the continuing recovery from the Souris River flood of 2011 as key challenges that the city will face in the next few years.

“I am also very concerned about rising property taxes, and I intend to work hard to keep property taxes affordable as I have done in the past,” he said.
