DRN recently announced Dan Barton, Ellendale, will fill the position of District 9 on DRN’s Board of Directors. Barton is a farmer and rancher and has served on the Farmers Union Board, Farm Service Agency committee as well as on his church and local township boards.


“As DRN continues expanding and improving services in our rural areas, we look forward to the new ideas and support Dan will bring to our board,” said DRN GM/CEO Kent Schimke. Dan Barton fills the seat vacated by Brunno Kinzler, Fullerton, who passed away in November 2021 and will serve the remainder of Kinzler’s term.


Barton is looking forward to the opportunity of being on DRN’s Board of Directors. He appreciates the positive impact and infinite capabilities DRN’s broadband service brings to rural North Dakota—from the rancher who can now monitor the herd on the live feed to the high school student who can attend class and complete their work from home.
