PAGE 2 THE PRESS MARCH 2, 2011 Retired but still commun'gy involved Recollections of 32 Years in the State Senate I plan to end these reports with a discussion of individuals I have met and worked with. I mentioned before that Harley Kingsbury was a good friend and well respected legislator. We traveled back and forth to Bis- marck together many times. When we as Democrats con- trolled the Senate for the first time in a hundred years (1987- 1989-1991 & 1993)I served as chairman of the Senate Appro- priation Committee. Bill Heigard and Don Vogsland served as majority leaders in the Senate for those three years. They were talented leaders and good friends. Gary Nelson be- came majority leader in 1995. He was a conservative Republi- can but a good friend. Davis Notking served on the Appropri- ation Committee and became chairman of the committee in 1995. Robert "Tork" Kili- chowski is presently a legislator in the House and has always helped me as a friend. Senator Evan Lips former mayor of Bismarck was the ap- propriation chair when I formed the committee in 1979 until 1987. He was an excellent leader and a good friend. Ray Holm- berg is the present chairman of the committee. He's from Grand Forks and was elected to the Senate in 1976 as I was. He's a very talented Legislator and friend. Floyd Stomme of Devils Lake was a good friend and has since passed away in Denver. Joel Heitkamp was a terrific sen- ator who always could say the right thing. His sister Heidi was a great Attorney General for 8 years and probably would have been Governor is she hadn't fallen ill in the campaign for Governor. Newly elected U.S. Senator John Hoeven was a very good President of the Bank of North Dakota before becoming Gover- nor. He was a Democrat at that time. I worked with many fine peo- ple in my 32 years and I must admit a few not so great who I won't mention. But all in all it was a wonderful experience and education and I thank the citi- zens of District 16 for giving me the chance. I worked with many fine people in my ' 3g years.., all in all "tt was a wonderful experience and education and I thank the citizens of District 16 for giving me the chance."
