MOORHEAD, Minn. (KFGO-AM) - Clay County's top prosecutor is running for re-election. County Attorney Brian Melton will seek a third, four-year term.
Melton says a growing population is having a big effect on the number and types of cases being prosecuted. He says at least some of the increased local drug and human trafficking activity can be connected to the North Dakota Oil Patch.
Melton joined the county attorney's office as an assistant prosecutor in 1998. He was first elected in 2006.
