Tangen gets auditor's job
The resignation of Becker County Auditor Keith Brekken came earlier than expected.
Brekken will retire effective today. The longtime auditor announced earlier that he would not seek reelection because he planned to retire this year.
The County Board accepted Brekken's resignation last Tuesday and thanked him for his service to the county.
"Everything just sort of fell into place," for a May 31 retirement, he told commissioners.
