Richard Anderson is the incumbent in this race, having served on the Beltrami County Board since 2011. Anderson is a retired educator, with his last posting at Bemidji High School as principal. Anderson says he brings a lot of negotiation experience and wants to keep politics out of the boardroom.

The new Beltrami County District 3 includes the City of Solway, City of Wilton; and the township of Bemidji, Buzzle, Eckles, Grant Valley, Jones, Lammers and Liberty.
