Gretchen Thilmony was appointed to lead the Becker County Attorney’s Office Tuesday by the Becker County Board.

She will fill out the unexpired term of current Becker County Attorney Mike Fritz, who has been appointed a district judge in Clay County. Tuesday will be his last day with Becker County.


His term expires at the end of this year, which means Thilmony will need to run in the general election Nov. 4, which she is prepared to do.
