2022 Board Candidates Biographies

Ben Niemeier
Howdy neighbors, my name is Ben Niemeier. My wife, France, and I live up Wahupa in Huson.
We’re grateful to live here in this area surrounded by so many kind folks and beautiful nature. I would be honored to join the NMCC board as a way of serving the people here, creating friendships, and ensuring we continue to give back in positive ways. I have a strong suit for working with different personalities, critical thinking and getting things done. I'm a lifelong student of many various endeavors. "A human being should be able to change a diaper, plan an invasion, butcher a hog, conn a ship, design a building, write a sonnet, balance accounts, build a wall, set a bone, comfort the dying, take orders, give orders, cooperate, act alone, solve equations, analyze a new problem, pitch manure, program a computer, cook a tasty meal, fight efficiently, die gallantly." -Robert Heilein
