St. Louis County Attorney Mark Rubin announced Monday his plans to retire at the end of September after more than 42 years of public service.
Rubin, who was raised in Duluth’s Smithville neighborhood and graduated from Morgan Park High School, joined the county attorney’s office as an intern in 1975 while attending the College of St. Scholastica, a news release said. He went on to attend what is now Mitchell Hamline School of Law, and after graduation was hired as an assistant St. Louis County attorney in 1978. With the exception of two years spent in private practice during the late 1980s, Rubin has worked in the county attorney’s office ever since.
Rubin was elected county attorney in 2010 and reelected twice. His current term runs through 2022. According to a news release, since Rubin is retiring prior to the end of his term, state statute says the County Board will have to appoint someone to fill the vacancy for the remainder of the term.
