Linda Svihovec
Research Analyst
Linda comes to us from a distinguished career in county government. First elected as Treasurer in McKenzie County, Linda was later merged into the Auditor's office and transitioned the county not only through that change in office, but through the mega changes of the oil boom. She is a recipient of NDACo's Excellence in County Government Award, but is aspiring to even great prestige someday in our annual staff chili cook-off. As Research Analyst, she gets to dig deep into what makes counties click and provide both the facts and the context to help us all benefit the citizens of ND.
