Fargo, West Fargo together pledge $800,000 toward $5 million 'Fueling Our Future' workforce drive

FARGO — Bernie Dardis remembers a time when his sign company was looking to hire a lead graphic artist and got 63 applications from four states.
That was back in the 1990s, when the Fargo-Moorhead job market was much less competitive than it is today. Now, he said, a similar job posting is likely to draw just one or two applicants.
Dardis, now the mayor of West Fargo, is an enthusiastic backer of a $5 million initiative called Fueling Our Future, a partnership between The Fargo Moorhead West Fargo Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Fargo Moorhead Economic Development Corp.
