Committee recommends Shane Baker for county attorney


WILLMAR — Assistant Kandiyohi County Attorney Shane Baker will be recommended for the job as the county’s top legal adviser and prosecutor.

A committee interviewed three finalists for the job of Kandiyohi County Attorney earlier this week and will recommend that the County Board appoint Baker to replace Jenna Fischer, who was sworn in as a new District 8 judge last week after resigning as county attorney.

The County Board will take action on the appointment Tuesday morning.
