Meet Our Mayor and Council
Board of Directors
Dan was born and raised in Faulkton and graduated from Faulkton High School in 1971. After living in the Minneapolis area for a few years, he returned to his home town to help his father, John Ramsdell, run his business, Johnny's Liquor Store. He and his wife Val have been married since 1973. Dan learned to fly in the late 80's and flew for Dakota Ag Spray Service for over 20 years as an aerial spray pilot out of the Faulkton airport. He next worked for Mike Harmon Aviation for four years and then retired from a successful career in aerial spraying. During his time of flying, he enjoyed giving countless personal airplane rides to many people and their children. He served on the Faulkton Area Medical Center Board of Directors for 10 years and is presently serving on the Faulkton City Council. For the last 15 years or so, Dan has been in charge of the fireworks for the 4th of July celebration and with the help of his "pyro crew" has brought joy to thousands at this annual event.
