Former sheriff a finalist for interim job in Steele County
Don Gudmundson, the longtime Dakota County Sheriff who retired from the county in February, is in the running to become the interim sheriff in Steele County.
Gudmundson announced last summer he would not seek re-election in the fall of 2010. Then, in February, he announced he would leave his post in Dakota County 10 months early due to personal reasons. His term was set to expire at the end of 2010.
The interim seat in Steele County would last through 2010.
