Fargo attorney Greg Hodur was voted to replace outgoing chairman Mark Schneider at the party’s policy committee meeting Saturday. Schneider had held the post since September 2009.
Hodur is an Ohio native who’s lived in the Fargo area for 10 years. He was challenged in the election by Max Laird of Bismarck.
According to a statement from the party, Hodur was elected with 35 votes, while Laird received 27.
I look forward to this opportunity and challenge, Hodur said in the statement. I will devote my full attention to the responsibilities of the chair and look forward to meeting with North Dakotans throughout the state.”
