TRANSCRIPT

 

Bismarck city leaders are officially in place tonight.

Mike Seminary is sworn in as Mayor along with incumbent Commissioner Josh Askvig and incoming Commissioner Nancy Guy.

Commissioner Parrell Grossman will serve as the new Vice Chair.

Mayor Seminary says he's excited to take on new responsibilities.

"You have a different type of responsibility now as the president of the Commission, so it's humbling that I have that opportunity and it's going to be a lot of work. Most importantly though, we have a great Commission and I'm looking forward to working with my fellow Commissioners," says Bismarck Mayor Mike Seminary.

One of Seminary's first initiatives as Mayor along with the Commission was creating a volunteer position for Native American Career Opportunity Development.

Seminary says he began developing the idea about six months ago in hopes to bring more diversity to the workforce.

Lorraine Davis will serve as his advisor on this issue.

"As we are getting more educated more of us are becoming competitive into the workforce and so we want to help that effort and that is what we're here for," says Advisor to the Mayor for Native American Career Opportunity Development Lorraine Davis.

Davis says many Native American youth who come to the City don't always have family here.

She thinks it will be helpful for them to have mentorship.
