Two Brainerd Attorneys To Fill The Ninth Judicial District Vacancies


PRESIDENT, GABE JOHNSON WILL RUN EACH MEETING AND ASSIGN COUNCIL MEMBERS TO SERVE ON VARIOUS CITY COMMITTEES.>>>BEFORE MARK DAYTON LEFT OFFICE AS MINNESOTA GOVERNOR, ONE OF HIS LAST DUTIES WAS TO FILL VACANCIES IN THE JUDICIAL SYSTEM ACROSS THE STATE. TWO BRAINERD ATTORNEYS, PATTY AANES AND CHUCK HALVERSON, WILL REPLACE JUDGE DAVID TENICK AND JUDGE DAVID HARRINGTON RESPECTIVELY. AANES IS CURRENTLY A SOLO PRACTITIONER WHO FOCUSES ON FAMILY LAW AND SHE WILL SERVE AS A DISTRICT JUDGE FOR CROW WING COUNTY, WHILE HALVERSON IS A DEFENSE ATTORNEY WORKING PRIMARILY WITH CRIMINAL CASES AND HE WILL TAKE THE BENCH AS A DISTRICT JUDGE FOR CASS COUNTY.>>I’M VERY EXCITED AND I’M VERY HONORED AND HUMBLED. I KNOW THAT, I THINK FOR ANYONE TAKING THE BENCH, NOT MANY NEW JUDGES HAVE EXPERIENCE IN EVERY SINGLE PRACTICE AREA THAT COMES BEFORE THE COURT, SO THERE IS A LEARNING CURVE FOR EVERYONE.>>IT’S A DIFFERENT PERSPECTIVE. IT’S A DIFFERENT ROLE. YOU’RE SITTING ON THE BENCH AND YOU’RE MAKING DECISIONS, SO IT’S JUST GOING TO BE MAKING THAT ADJUSTMENT, BUT YEAH, I THINK I CAN DO IT. BUT IT’S GOING TO COME WITH A LITTLE NERVOUSNESS THAT GOES ALONG WITH IT.>>Dennis: PATTY AANES WILL BE SWORN IN ON THE 8th OF FEBRUARY,
