Thilmony appointed Becker County attorney
Grand Forks North Dakota 375 2nd Ave. N. 58203

DETROIT LAKES, Minn. -- The Becker County Board on Tuesday appointed Gretchen Thilmony to lead the Becker County Attorney’s Office.

She will fill out the unexpired term of current Becker County Attorney Mike Fritz, who has been appointed a district judge in Clay County. Next 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.

Thilmony has been an assistant Becker County attorney since 1998. She was born and raised in Detroit Lakes, as were her parents.

“My roots run deep in Becker County and the majority of both my immediate and extended family remain in Becker County,” she said in a letter to commissioners.

While she was an assistant county attorney, and up until 2001, when the office became full time, she also worked for the law firm of Hummel, Sinclair, Evans, Hunt &  Heisler.
