Governor Dalrymple Appoints New State Tax Commissioner

Posted:

It's a big day for Ryan Rauschenberger, former state Deputy Tax Commissioner.

Governor Jack Dalrymple appointed Rauschenberger as North Dakota's new Tax Commissioner.

Cory Fong is resigning in December and Rauschenberger was next in line to fill out the rest of Fong's term.

Several republican state officials have stepped down from their positions before fulfilling the full term in recent history.

Dalrymple says he's understands that that happens.

"Opportunities do come up for people while they're in public office and sometimes they are really outstanding opportunities. So I think over the years we've understood, you know, that people are always trying to fill out their term if possible but, you know, life isn't always like that," says Governor Jack Dalrymple.

Fong's term ends at the end of 2014.

Rauschenberger says he is interested in running for the job.
