Luther Meberg - Walsh County Commissioner
Among Luther’s many notable achievements, he was nominated by the ND County Commissioners Association in recognition of his active work in legislative matters, including many long trips to the capitol to testify. He is known locally as an advocate for quality services and has encouraged many Walsh County residents to run for local office or otherwise contribute to their communities.
Tracey Dolezal - Dunn County Auditor/Treasurer
Tracey Dolezal has an incredible career of service to Dunn County, including Tax Director, Planning and Zoning Coordinator, Superintendent of Schools and now Auditor/Treasurer. She has stepped up at every opportunity to take on any task and guided the county through many uncharted waters as the county’s population exploded during the oil boom. She is also active in her church and community, reaching out to neighbors in need in a variety of ways.
Lori Tabor - Dunn County Highway Department Office Coordinator
Lori is one of those employees who steps up to the demands of her job and then steps up to the demands of any other job she can help out with, such as taking on the duties of Risk Manager in addition to her duties as Office Coordinator. She dives deep into projects like researching and choosing the best software solutions. After all that, she doesn’t just keep things running smoothly but is a cheerleader and motivator for everyone in her entire department.
Greg Wilz - Director, ND Dept. of Emergency Services
Among the most important and most visible functions of county government is emergency response. Through floods, droughts, fires and more, counties across the state know that the North Dakota Department of Emergency Services “has their backs.” As Director of that Department, Greg Wilz has been personally involved in developing and maintaining a strong, positive relationship between the state and counties. We are indebted to him and to his department for supporting our counties in everything from localized emergencies to statewide and nationally declared disasters.
