James Backstrom, Dakota County
Electing a county attorney, one of the top law enforcement officials in your community, is an important decision. It’s critical county attorneys have solid experience, strong leadership and management skills and demonstrate fairness and professionalism in their work. Janelle Kendall possesses all of these attributes and that is why she deserves to be re-elected as Stearns County attorney.
Kendall is highly respected by her peers. She has served as a board member of the Minnesota County Attorneys Association since 1999 and was elected President of MCAA in 2009. In 2010, she received an MCAA award given to signify leadership and commitment to our state’s prosecutors. Kendall was also selected to serve as Minnesota’s state director to the National District Attorneys Association. Serving on boards of this nature helps Kendall return new ideas from across our state and nation to benefit the citizens of Stearns County.
As a colleague with more than 27 years of experience, I can tell you Kendall possesses the experience and skills you need in your county attorney and she has great passion for her work with unquestionable integrity. I urge Stearns County voters to re-elect her as Stearns County attorney.
