Baker sworn in as new Kandiyohi County Attorney


WILLMAR — Shane Baker was sworn in Tuesday as the new Kandiyohi County Attorney.

He will fill the unexpired term of Jenna Fischer, who resigned this month after she was appointed to serve as an Eighth Judicial District judge.

After a unanimous vote of appointment by the Kandiyohi County Board, Baker said he was “humbled by the moment” and recognized the “great responsibility” that comes with the County Attorney’s Office of providing “justice in the community.”
