County auditor/treasurer resigns

Cottonwood County will have a new lead election officer for 2024, after County Auditor/Treasurer Donna Torkelson submitted her resignation.

County Attorney Nick Anderson stated the resignation was effective Feb. 16.

Torkelson was re-elected to the auditor/treasurer position in 2022.

Anderson stated that the county board of commissioners will be able to appoint someone to complete the remainder of the term, which is up for election in 2026, rather than having a special election to fill the final two years of the term.

More on this story will appear in the Jan. 31 print and e-editions of the Citizen.
