Editor’s note: Attorneys Eric Herendeen and Brett Corson are running for the position of Fillmore County Attorney. The post has been held for the past several years by Matt Opat who is not seeking re-election.The Journal asked the two candidates to respond to an Election Questionnaire. Here are their responses in their own words.

Journal: Inform the readers as to your qualifications and motivation for running for County Attorney.Corson: I believe that I am the best candidate for Fillmore County Attorney because of my legal expertise, integrity, and work ethic. Most people know me as owner/partner of Corson Law Offices in Preston where I have practiced for the last 13 years. In my private practice, I have extensive experience in defending criminal cases, negotiating contracts, establishing child support, performing land transactions, dealing with land use issues and handling other legal matters. I prosecute criminal matters for the City of Rushford and act as Fillmore Township Attorney. I am a former Public Defender for the State of Minnesota. I also have 13 years in the Army Reserve where I am a Command Judge Advocate for a Battalion Commander and hold the rank of Major. I am a member of the 10th Judicial District Bar Association Ethics Committee, State Bar Association, and Federal Bar.I am a lifetime member resident of Fillmore County. I grew up in Preston in a family of eight children. I have been married to my wife Nancy for 16 years. We have three daughters, Natasha, Hannah, and Gretchen. My family and community are very important to me. I want Fillmore County to remain a place that has thriving schools, farms, businesses, and communities. Healthy families, schools, and community organizations are essential components in the fight against domestic abuse, crime, and other matters which must be addressed by the County and County Attorney’s office. Therefore, I have been involved with the Wykoff Lions, Immanuel Lutheran Church and other community groups. I have acted as President, Council member, Tail Twister, Secretary, Sunday School Teacher, and held other offices in these organizations. I am an individual who is a leader and organizer within the community. As County Attorney I will continue to be a leader inside and outside of the Courtroom.Herendeen: I live in Preston with Damita, my wife of 13 years. I graduated from Hamline University School of Law. I also studied Comp .....
