Two New to ND United

Sarah Grossbauer and Andrew Winter have joined the staff as campaign organizers during the legislative session.

North Dakota United added two new staff members at the start of 2023. Sarah Grossbauer and Andrew Winter were both hired as Legislative Campaign Organizers, and their primary duties will be to monitor the current legislative session and communicate with members what is happening and how they can assist in supporting or opposing key bills. 

Grossbauer graduated from Coastal Carolina University in December 2022, having double majored in Political Science and Women and Gender Studies. She previously worked as a fellow with the North Dakota Democratic-NPL in the 2018 midterm elections, and was an organizer with the South Carolina Democratic Party during the 2020 elections.  

Sarah currently lives in Grand Forks, where she grew up, and has an English setter, named Pua. She said she enjoys spending lots of time with her friends and family of 10, which includes her parents, three biological siblings, and four foster children who were formally adopted, grassroots organizing, and is an avid dog lover. 

Winter is a 2013 graduate of North Dakota State University, with bachelor’s degrees in Microbiology and Biotechnology. He also has a master’s degree in Biomedical Science and Biotechnology from University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus. Previous to his grad school studies, he worked for the USDA, General Mills, Medtronic, and a food microbiology company. He spent six years CU Anschutz, conducting critically important breast cancer and liver disease research, before moving onto a career in labor organizing. He was a member of CU’s union – the United Campus Workers of Colorado – and also served on their steering committee, executive board and as a communications organizer. 

Andrew now lives in Fargo, where he says he is glad to be able to play baseball again with his old-town ball team, the Fargo Mets. He originally grew up in Canby, Minn., and he plays guitar in a band called Restart Refresh with three lifelong friends from Canby, two of which now live in Fargo. “I have a bit of a green thumb,” he said, “and love taking care of my many houseplants, but I miss my garden in the back yard of my home in Denver.”
