It’s not every day that former Vice President Walter Mondale speaks in a courtroom in Duluth. But Monday morning, that’s exactly what happened, as he was the speaker at Sheriff Ross Litman’s Swearing in ceremony.

Mondale actually wanted to administer the oath, but he and Litman found out he technically could not.

Still, he wouldn’t miss this. “I’ve known Ross since he was a kid. He’s the kind of public servant who makes you feel good. The kind you need. He’s honest, generous, and effective,” Mondale shared.

Judge Mark Munger, who retires on Friday, administered the oath. His chambers used to be Litman’s father’s. 

Litman said this has been the greatest job he’s ever had. And it’s likely his last term. He was elected in 2002.

He thanked the crowd of staff, friends, and family for their support, saying he couldn’t do the job without them.
