North Dakota Mayors Agree That Tax Reform Is Necessary After Trump’s Speech

Two mayors said that Trump should address tax reform first, then shift focus to infrastructure.

The mayors of Bismarck and Mandan, North Dakota, both agree that tax reform is necessary after President Trump’s speech on the topic in North Dakota on Wednesday.

“Tax reform is a good thing,” Mandan Mayor Tim Helbling said. “I hope Senator Heitkamp and Senator Hoeven and Representative Cramer can come together and forget the political differences and show the North Dakota spirit and work together and come up with a common-sense way to make some of this happen.

“I hope the next thing they do is address infrastructure,” Bismark Mayor Mike Seminary said. “If we can find ways to provide meaningful tax relief and then find ways to move the infrastructure bill forward, that will put a lot of Americans to work.”

Both mayors told a local NBC affiliate that Trump should address tax reform first, but an infrastructure program from Trump should come next.
