Larry Robinson’s Platform
I have demonstrated leadership and strong support for a host of issues throughout my legislative career.
I have worked hard to insure strong program support for senior citizens, Nursing Homes, DD providers, veterans, main street business, education at all levels, and farmers and ranchers. I have worked hard for strong support for K-12 education, permanent flood protection, property tax relief and support for infrastructure. In the 2019 session I was a co-sponsor of the Prairie Dog bill intended to support our roads and bridges with an appropriation of $230 million. I have been on the Water Topics Committee securing millions in permanent flood protection for Valley City and Lisbon. I was co-sponsor of the Capital Building bill in the 2019 session which funded a $32 million dollar Center for the Arts Building at Valley City State University. In addition, we provided funding for an important Agricultural Products marketing facility at North Dakota State University.
I took a leadership position working to re-open the Highway Shops at Courtenay and Litchville. I worked to secure the initial appropriation of $1,000,000 which provided the seed money for the construction of the Wellness Center in Valley City. In 2005, I sponsored legislation that resulted in the establishment of an addiction treatment center. The facility opened in Fargo and later was named the Robinson Recovery Center.
I believe in a balanced system of taxation. It is important that we provide for a strong system of education. We also need to provide support for Agricultural Research. Our children will compete in a global society.
Whether it’s knocking doors, making phone calls, or hosting events for local and statewide candidates like me, District 24 is stronger with volunteers.
Can I count on you to support progress and help get Democrats elected in North Dakota?

Ron Tolstad, Retired State Employee, Bismarck, N.D.
“Having worked for the state for over 30 years, I’ve been pleased to see how well my hometown Senator has worked to build positive relationships with his fellow lawmakers. He has worked tirelessly on the Senate Appropriations Committee ensuring VCSU and the Veteran’s Home are not forgotten. Beyond his work on the Technology Committee and the Higher Education Committee, I think he is most proud of serving the needs of the people of District 24.”
Mike Ressler, Retired CIO, State of North Dakota.
“I began working with Larry in 1997 on the State’s Information Technology (IT) budget and policies. He was the first chairperson of the Legislative IT Committee. His leadership and tireless energy resulted in North Dakota State agencies enhancing many old business applications with much needed technology. This resulted in data accessibility and saved countless hours and dollars for the citizens of North Dakota. Larry is one of the most tactful legislators I worked with. His personal skills are one of his many strengths as we worked though many difficult issues deploying new technologies. Larry treats all individuals with respect and is a model legislator who is able to develop groups, both Democrats and Republicans, with opposite views, to work together and compromise to achieve results. His many years of experience serving the people has provided him great knowledge in dealing with the complexities of government. He has become an influential mentor to other legislators. North Dakota is fortunate to have someone of his caliber to serve in this role. As a state employee for 32 years and serving as the North Dakota Chief Information Technology Officer through 2016, I had the utmost respect for Larry and his commitment to make the decisions that put the citizens of North Dakota first. He was a great inspiration to me and became a true friend who really did care about me as well as others he was serving.”
Steven Johnson, Superintendent, Lisbon Public Schools.
“Senator Robinson stays connected. Senator Robinson has been outstanding to work with in my many years at Lisbon public Schools. He does a great job staying in regular contact not only during the legislative sessions, but during the interims as well. I enjoy his regular legislative reports in the newspapers, and his attendance at legislative forums on weekends during the legislative session.”
Gary Skarphol, Chairman, North Dakota Veterans Home Governing Board.
“I have worked with Senator Robinson in my various roles with Veteran’s organizations since 2000. Larry has always been dependable, honest, responsive, and caring for all issues for Veterans. He has shown concern on issues not only pertaining to the Veterans but also for the services that are provided by the state and federal government. It is his positive attitude and worthy results that he continues to serve in the legislature.”
Shelly Peterson, President, North Dakota Long Term Care Association.
“Senator Larry Robinson has worked hard and tirelessly to assure funding for individuals in long term care. As a member of the Senate Appropriations Committee, he has worked hard to make sure funding is provided to help North Dakotans get the services they need in their time of need. He has also been a strong vocal supporter of drug and alcohol services and prevention, long term care, and home and community based services. He is a voice of reason and works collaboratively to bring improvements to North Dakota. I hope the citizens of District 24 will re-elect Senator Robinson. We need his leadership, goodwill, and proactive approach to solving problems.”
