NEW TOWN, N.D. – North Dakota State Rep. Bill Oliver, R-New Town, has announced he will step down from the state assembly at the end of next month.

Oliver, who represents North Dakota’s District 4, made the announcement Wednesday on his Facebook page.

In his post, Oliver cited personal reasons for his departure, saying he "cannot represent the district for constituents all of them Republican and Democrat in the proper fashion."

Voters elected Oliver in late 2016, and he joined the assembly in 2017.

It’s unclear at this time how Oliver’s seat in the state assembly will be filled.
