Gogebic County Prosecutor Nick Jacobs, who was on the three-person committee to appoint a treasurer, announced the selection on Friday.

Hewitt replaces Sue Pertile, who retired effective Oct. 31.

Jacobs noted the committee formed under state statuteS completed the process of reviewing applications and conducting interviews to appoint the treasurer for the term of office which expires on Dec. 31, 2020.

Hewitt has served as the magistrate for Gogebic County’s 98th District Court for the past three years.

Prior to that, she was employed as the administrative assistant for the family division of the 32nd Circuit Court.
