FM mayors name June "Home Ownership Month"


FM (WDAY TV) - Back home now the mayors of Fargo, Moorhead, West Fargo and Dilworth gathered today to proclaim June "homeownership month".

The proclamation runs in conjunction with national homeownership month.

The Home Builders Association of FM says construction of 100 new homes in our area generates $9.5 million worth of economic benefit to local businesses in a single year.

Moorhead mayor Del Rae Williams says ownership also builds on more than the economy.

I joined the WDAY 6 news team in September of 2013 as a weekend anchor and reporter. Previous to arriving in the F-M area, I worked as a broadcast journalist at the CBS affiliate (KTVQ) in Billings, Montana (sidenote: my hometown). I have worn many hats in my young broadcast career as an anchor, reporter, producer, sports producer and online producer. However, my favorite role to play is storyteller (collective: "ahh"). When not bringing you the news, I enjoy taking in or participating in sports. On the professional level, I root for Seattle teams. As a graduate of the University of Montana, I also enjoys FCS football (but forgive my allegiance). I also enjoy reading, watching movies, listening to good music and frolicking in the outdoors. I enjoy those things all the more when I can do them with my wife, Annie (a Minnesota native). If you have a story idea for me, or just want to say hello, you can send me an email!
