Fargo firefighter Scot Kelsh is running for State Auditor. The Democrat has represented District 11 in the state House since 1996. He presently serves on the Finance and Taxation committee, energy and natural resources committee, and the committee of employment.

Kelsh says his experience in all of these areas makes him a good candidate for this position. He plans to act as a watch dog to make sure tax dollars are being spent correctly.

State Representative Scot Kelsh (D) Candidate for ND Auditor: “We are at a point in North Dakota that we virtually have a one party rule in the state of North Dakota and I don't think that’s healthy. I think we need to bring some accountability and balance back to state government.”

Republican Robert R. Peterson has been the state auditor for 16 years. His father held the office for 24 years.
