Kandiyohi County Attorney: Fischer believes approach to life serves her well


WILLMAR -- Jennifer "Jenna" Fischer thinks of herself as an approachable person whose experience would inform her work if she's elected Kandiyohi County attorney.

Fischer is running against 20-year incumbent Boyd Beccue.

In the August primary, Fischer was the leader in a three-way race to narrow the field for the general election.

She received 64 percent of the votes cast in the primary. Beccue had 22 percent and Bradley Junkermeier 14 percent of the votes.
