Kyle Thorson

North Dakota Senate, District 18, ND

Kyle is dedicated to building community here in Grand Forks. From being a global manager at Amazon to owning a small business, Kyle has seen firsthand that a great team and a little elbow grease can get things done. He gets what it is like to work hard to create something from the ground up. It's one of the many reasons he loves living in North Dakota.

For over 10 years, Kyle has invested his time to create opportunities for people to connect with one another. Through his coffee house, Archives Coffee, he has partnered with multiple local organizations to spotlight their missions and connect University of North Dakota students to the greater community. He has hosted Pride Grand Forks for 5 years, served on the board of CVIC to reduce community violence, and is also a board member at Christus Rex Lutheran Campus ministry.

Kyle is motivated by his belief that investing in people will make a stronger state and economy. He is progressing issues such as universal Pre-K, increasing access to mental healthcare, and small business programs like paid family/sick leave. Kyle believes that by working together, we can come up with solutions that work for everyone.
