Ryan to run for sixth term as Crow Wing County attorney


Twenty years ago, Don Ryan announced his candidacy for Crow Wing County attorney for the first time.

Since that spring of 1994, there have been a multitude of changes in technology and duties. But Ryan said one thing hasn’t changed — his excitement to tackle the current challenges of the office and new ones in the future.

Ryan will seek a sixth term this fall.
