Scott Burlingame is true leader in Minot's nonprofit community. Scott has served on numerous boards, coalitions, and is currently Vice President of The Minot Nonprofit Alliance. All this while executing flawlessly his real job as Executive Director of Independence Inc (a nonprofit that helps those with health issues).
Scott is truly a man with a heart to help others and now he would like to help the entire City of Minot using his skills and compassion as a member of Minot's City Council. Knowing the amazing things Scott has done with tight budgets he gets my vote.
Listen in as Scott talks about the nonprofit community as well as his desire to serve as a Minot Councilman.
In today's interview, 01/25/2020, Mayor Shaun Sipma and I visit about the upcoming State of the City address (Thursday February 7th) in the Arvel Graving Theater on the Magic City Campus (Minot High).
We also spend a bit of time discussing the new FEMA flood maps coming out in June and what those maps mean to those who live in the flood plain.
If you live in Minot you do not want to miss the State of the City address and if you live in the flood plain you really do not want to miss this conversation with Mayor Shaun Sipma.

I meet Nate a couple of months ago after grilling him about his faith. I liked his answers so I visited his place of work and found that I fit in perfectly (although I'm the oldest man there). I'm talking about Reverend Nathan Walters, pastor of Grace Lutheran Church, Wisconsin Synod.
Listen in. I hope your biggest take-away from this is that the term "conservative" Christian does not have a political connotation nor does it mean we are holly-roller Bible thumpers looking for people to hit over the head with a Bible.

If your community were to suffer from a devastating flood how quick would you think it would take for full recovery and for future flood protection? If you are thinking a year or two you need some educating on the subject. The correct answer would more likely be TWO DECADES!
Minot Mayor Shaun Sipma and I visit about a couple of the components our City is currently dealing with in regards to the NDR (National Disaster Resilientsy)program. This program is very complicated and jumping through all the hoops HUD requires is a real eye opener.

Do members of a Toastmasters club sit around, drink champagne, and make toasts? NO! However when I first heard of Toastmasters 35 years ago that is what I envisioned. It was not until I attended my 1st meet this year that I found out what really goes on at those Toastmaster meetings. I hope you will listen in and learn to today's Radio Broadcast and/or podcast and see if Toastmasters maybe something that interests you.
