InfoElected in 2000, Jack Dalrymple is North Dakota's 35th lieutenant governor. He brings an outstanding record in farming, business and legislative leadership to the lieutenant governor�s office. Born Oct. 16, 1948, in Minneapolis, he grew up in Casselton on the family farm, established in 1875 as North Dakota�s first large-scale wheat farm. Dalrymple graduated with honors from Yale University in 1970 with a bachelor�s degree in American Studies, returning to North Dakota afterward to manage the farming operations. He and Betsy Wood were married in 1971, and they have four daughters.

Dalrymple became active in the community serving on the Casselton Jobs Development Commission and helping to found Share House, Inc., a Fargo residential treatment program for recovering alcoholics and drug dependents. Dalrymple came to the North Dakota Legislature in 1985, representing a rural Cass County House district. He served eight terms, including four as chairman of the influential House Appropriations Committee. In the 1999-2000 interim, he also chaired the Budget Section, the legislative panel charged with reviewing spending issues between sessions.

Dalrymple is a nationally recognized leader in value-added agriculture. He chairs the board of the Dakota Growers Pasta Company, the largest producer of non-branded pasta in the United States, headquartered in Carrington, N.D. The company operates as a cooperative of more than 1,000 durum growers. Dalrymple is also a national voice for agriculture as a member of the board of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
