At-Large Director

Dan Stenvold

At-Large Director

Hello! My name is Dan Stenvold. Could I please have your vote for Director at Large at this convention? I have been serving on the VVA National Board for a few years, and I am now serving as chair of the Convention Committee; as chair of the Awards Subcommittee; and as chair of the Investment Subcommittee. I am a member of the Finance Committee, the PTSD/Suicide Prevention Committee, and the Public Affairs Committee.

 

I served three tours in Vietnam–in 1969, 1970, and 1971–with the Army artillery. We fired thousands and thousands of rounds from our 155M guns in support of all you 11B’s out there, without an accident!

 

I’m married, for the second time; I have five grown children and eleven grandchildren who are all healthy. For several years, I have been the mayor of Park River, North Dakota, a small town of 1,500 that has been very progressive. I manage five departments, including a small police force, our landfill organization, our electric company, a rural water consortium, and a very aggressive economic development committee. We work with a $6M budget each year.

 

I am past president of the North Dakota League of Cities, and I serve on the board of the Red River Regional Council, an incubator for new businesses with a $1.2M budget. I also serve on several of the governor’s veterans boards in North Dakota.

 

I have been the VVA North Dakota State Council president since 1999. I have seen our state membership grow from 241 in 1999 to just about 800 at this time. I have convened fifty-one Agent Orange roundtables in our counties, with three left to do. We are responsible for three 20’X60’ billboards that were placed along our I-highways, drawing national attention with the simple message: AGENT ORANGE IS KILLING OUR CHILDREN!

 

I’m a 100%er and life member of all the service organizations except for the American Legion, where I am an annual member.

 

I believe in honesty and transparency. If you want the truth, ask me, if you don’t, don’t ask, because as with my job as mayor, I won’t sugar coat it!

 

I would appreciate your vote for another two years as one of your directors at large. Thank you!
