Darren Baldridge

Darren Baldridge, the first African-American elected county attorney in the state of Iowa, was elected to the office of Webster County Attorney on Tuesday, November 6, 2018. Before that, Mr. Baldridge had re-thought the position of county attorney, saying he wanted to concentrate on prosecuting criminals, rather than politics. But in a strange twist of events, he was elected anyway, and he now serves the county with gusto.

Before becoming a county attorney, he was a member of the Iowa County Attorney Association. In that role, he has authored several articles on law practice and law administration. He has served as the association’s Vice-Chair for Case Management Project. He has also served on the Association’s Legislative Committee and Civil Practice Committee. In the past, he has served as a board member of the Fort Dodge Public Library Foundation and Youth Shelter Care of North Central Iowa.

Pete Grady

I’ve recently been privileged to receive some training from Peter Grady, the assistant attorney general of the state of Iowa, who specializes in criminal defense and is a member of the Iowa County Attorney Association. Grady was kind enough to invite my office to one of his training conferences. This led me to learn about a grant for 80% of the cost of office equipment. I’m very grateful for this opportunity.
