MINOT, N.D. – North Central District Judge Stacy Louser has announced her intentions to run for re-election to the bench.
Former Gov. Jack Dalrymple, R-N.D., first appointed Louser to the seat in 2014 to replace the retiring Judge William McLees.
Louser successfully retained the seat in the 2016 election general election. North Dakota law states that appointed judges must run for re-election in the next general election if they wish to hold the seat.
A Minot native, Louser received her law degree from the University of North Dakota in 2007. She is one of five judges in the North Central district, that includes Doug Mattson, Gary Lee, Todd Cresap, and Richard Hagar.
District judges serve six-year terms.
The primary election is June 12, with the general election Nov. 6.
