Cass County Democratic Women Plus awarded Rep. Gretchen Dobervich Democratic Person of the Year.
Dobervich remarked, “This is a really unexpected honor to receive from my friends in the Cass County Dem Women Plus. I think about previous winners of this award who’ve done amazing work, and it’s incredible to be amongst them.”
Dobervich was recently reelected to North Dakota State House where she has served since 2017. Dobervich plans to put forward bills for Medicaid presumptive eligibility, which would allow North Dakotans to access medicaid and thus healthcare soon, and to remove the tax on feminine hygiene classify medically necessary.
This award has been given out since 1980. Nominees must have been a member of Cass County Democratic Women Plus for at least six months and have actively participated in it and their Legislative District Democratic-NPL. Members submit their votes prior to the organization’s annual Holiday Dinner.
