Meet the District 30 Executive Committee
District Chairman – Justis Amundson
I am the former Vice-Chair of the North Dakota Young Republicans Southwest Region. My primary responsibility was to increase party membership in North Dakota through grassroots activism. To accomplish this, I organized 11 public events including political rallies, gun raffles, membership drives, meet & greets, and more. My political experience includes working as a political consultant, social media manager and outreach director on serval grassroots campaigns and initiated measures. I was recently elected Chairman of the District 30 Republicans and am on the sponsoring committee for the “North Dakota for Term Limits” initiative.
Vice-Chairman – Dustin Amundson
I am happily married, with four children and three grand-children. I am currently working towards a major in marketing, with minors in web-design, public relations and business administration. I served as a delegate to the last two North Dakota state conventions. My hobbies include playing chess and studying / teaching about our republican system of government. I also organize events across North Dakota, bringing in constitutional scholars and personalities. I believe jealousy is a key ingredient of a republican government that divides powers between different branches and levels. Each branch and level must jealously guard the powers we delegated to them. If not, we should replace them. I oppose term-limits.
Vice-Chairwoman – Kimmie Needham
I believe in individual liberty, personal responsibility, and due process. I am unapologetically pro-life, pro-tax relief, pro-medical freedom, and pro-small government. I would love to see more citizen involvement in ND politics and am committed to doing what I can to make that happen. Additionally, I am passionate about seeing a change in the way that ND sentences those who are found guilty of committing sex crimes. I am honored to serve as vice-chairwoman of the District 30 Republicans.
Secretary – Cody Igoe

I am the father to three awesome children and the husband to one amazing wife for 17 years.

These past couple of years have been an eye-opening experience for me politically. After my wife facilitated some constitutional classes, I came to fully recognize that my duty as a citizen includes becoming educated and involved in politics.
Senator - Diane Larson
I first ran for the ND House of Representatives in 1988 and after serving one term I didn’t run for re-election because I wanted to spend more time with my young daughters.

My B committee is the Political Subdivision Committee chaired by Senator Randy Burckhard.
Serving as a youth worker for twenty-three years at the Bismarck Police Department before retirement gave me the opportunity to work with many great families in Bismarck. I continue to serve on many Juvenile Justice boards and committees such as: The Commission of Juvenile Justice, The State Advisory Group on Juvenile Justice, the Children’s Advocacy Center, the Dakota Boys and Girls Ranch and I was on the working group that reworked on rewriting the Juvenile Court Act that was passed in the 2021 session. I’m also a vice-chair on the National Conference of State Legislators Law, Criminal Justice and Public Safety committee.
I’ve been endorsed by the Bismarck/Mandan Board of Realtors, the Missouri River Fraternal Order of Police, the Family Policy Alliance, Pro-life and the NRA. I’m listed as a Chamber Champion for my record of voting for pro-business legislation.
