North Dakota will miss Clare Aubol

North Dakota will miss Clare Aubol
News of New Town Mayor Clare Aubol’s death early Monday morning sent shock waves through the community, the state and the Democratic Party.
Aubol, who was 73, was admired, not only in New Town, but was well liked and well known across North Dakota because he has been active in politics since the early 1970s.
Aubol was one of the first residents of New Town, moving from old Sanish, and often told colleagues and friends he was the first graduate of New Town High School because his name, alphabetically, was first and that he was among the first graduating class.
A former farm implement dealer, Aubol spoke often about the early days of New Town following the building of Garrison Dam. His “pioneer” pride was evident in recent months as he continued to work effortlessly for the residents of New Town.
