Omdahl: Communities need more doctors

Email

In 1948, the people of North Dakota voted to levy a 1 mill statewide property tax to help fund the University of North Dakota Medical Center. They did it because they wanted doctors.

Even though the levy was no longer necessary, they voted against repealing it in the 1980 primary election. They wanted more doctors.

In November 1982, they again voted against repealing the 1 mill property levy. They wanted more doctors.
