Basin Electric retiree joins North Dakota House

Vern Laning

Vern Laning worked for Basin Electric for 34 years, first at Leland Olds Station, then Glenharold Mine, then Antelope Valley Station, and finally at Headquarters as vice president, plant operations. He retired in May 2008.

Since then, he’s been connected to Basin Electric through volunteerism, most recently at the 2012 Norsk Hostfest.

Now, Laning is starting on a new adventure. He was elected to serve District 8 in the North Dakota House of Representatives. The session begins Jan. 8, 2013.

Watch the video to hear Laning describe how he decided to get involved, and how he hopes to contribute in a unique way.
