Paul Hanson is the grandson of an immigrant Norwegian who settled east of Mayville. A graduate of Mayville-Portland High and the University of North Dakota, Paul holds degrees in biology and chemistry. He returned to the homestead farm in Mayville to raise cattle, hogs, and grain. North Dakota industry is also a part of his background having worked at Crystal Sugar as a chemist, and today as a consultant with an emerging industry in Portland, ND.
With a strong sense of community and public service, and a background in agriculture, Paul understands how critical the farm to market roads are and how roads in general are necessary to connect the rest of us to our jobs in the sustainability and growth of our small towns.
As a rural EMT and research analyst, he has witnessed the inherent shortcomings in the health care systems. Paul has worked diligently to overcome these inequities by being involved with the training of EMTs, has worked as a coordinator, along with being instrumental in developing a region-wide first responder network for Traill County.
Paul feels strongly that from his vast career with acquired critical thinking skills and a deep sense of service, he would promote District 20 to a greater prominence.
There is more to do!
Paul has three adult children and one grandson. They have sought leadership careers in Social Services, Nursing and the food service industry.
