The Commission on Judicial Selection today recommended five candidates to fill two vacancies in the 7th Judicial District. Becker County Attorney Michael Fritz is included in the list.
Fritz serves as the Becker County Attorney, where he represents the Board of Commissioners and various departments for Becker County and maintains a caseload of criminal and child protection matters. He previously served as the assistant Becker County Attorney and was a partner with Hummel, Sinclair, Evans, Hunt, Heisler and Fritz, practicing in estate planning, municipal and employment matters. Fritz is a past president of the Becker County Bar Association.
Becker County employees congratulate Mike on the honor and even though it would be a tremendous loss for the county family, they wish him the best of luck in the interview.
Minnesota's 7th District consists of Becker, Benton, Clay, Douglas, Mille Lacs, Morrison, Otter Tail, Stearns, Todd and Wadena counties. Gov. Mark Dayton is expected to make the appointments in the coming weeks.
