Glenn and Laurie Huestis say 'Thank you' at Retirement Party


January 9, 2019

Glenn and Laurie Huestis have served the people of Blaine County with honor and admiration for quite some time and were recognized for their service at a retirement party for the both of them last week.

Glenn is retiring from the Blaine County Sheriffs Department while Laurie is retiring from the Blaine County Disaster and Emergency Services and Blaine County Sanitarian Offices.

Glenn and Laurie first came to Chinook in 1980 when Glenn took a position with the city police department. A few months later Glenn decided to make the move to the Blaine County Sheriff's department and served as a deputy for more than four years.

In 1985 Glenn was chosen to replace outgoing Sheriff Charlie Hay after his sudden departure. Glenn served as Sheriff until 1989 when he decided to farm and drive truck. He ran for Blaine County Sheriff in 1998 and was elected and sworn in, January of 1999 and has held the position until he decided to not seek another term and retire.

Laurie began in the Blaine County Attorney's office and then transitioned to DES/Sanitarian a few years later and has served their faithfully since. Laurie has also been a dedicated member of the Blaine I Ambulance crew and will continue to serve in that capacity.

Laurie summed it up best when she said, "We've worked with some great people, who we will miss but we are not leaving Chinook, so we'll be around." Glenn simply said, "It's been an honor and privilege to serve the people of Blaine County, thank you."
