Application process begins for County Attorney position

Following the announced retirement of St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin, under Minnesota law, it is the County Board's responsibility to appoint someone to fill the role for the remainder of the term. 


Rubin plans to retire on September 30, 2021. His current term ends January 2, 2023.


Anyone interested in applying for the appointment should email a cover letter and resume to  Deputy County Administrator Brian Fritsinger at on or before August 31, 2021.


At their meeting Tuesday, commissioners expressed a commitment to keeping the selection process transparent. The Board intends to make a final decision on whom to appoint at its meeting on September 14. That meeting is scheduled to be held at the Virginia Courthouse, 300 South 5th Avenue in Virginia.
