Letter: Farsighted Burgum promises to be exciting leader

It is very exciting to see -- for the first time that I can remember -- a forward-thinking, self-made man (no money from daddy) as governor of North Dakota.

During a recent press interview, Gov. Doug Burgum said that "we have to have courageous curiosity. We can come up with completely new paradigms in how we think about solving society's most pressing problems. Sometimes, more money isn't the answer. Sometimes, a better idea is the answer."

This is one of the most intelligent and true statements that I have ever heard come out of a politician’s mouth. Perhaps it's because Burgum has had no prior experience as a politician. Yes, I bet that's it! How refreshing.
