For Jefferson County.
Trisha Stefanski is excited to be a candidate for the Republican nomination for the office of Jefferson County Prosecuting Attorney in 2018.
Ms. Stefanski has served the citizens of Jefferson County as an Assistant Prosecuting Attorney for the past 11 years. She has aggressively prosecuted criminals who attempt to take advantage of our community by manufacturing or selling drugs.
Ms. Stefanski is a 1993 graduate of Eureka High School, a 1998 graduate of Missouri State University and 2005 graduate of St. Louis University School of Law. Ms. Stefanski and Patrick Christopher, live in Fenton with their blended family of four great children. They are members of Immaculate Conception Parish and avid supporters of Meramec Sharks hockey.
Jefferson County prosecuting attorney
As the leader of the Jefferson County Drug Unit, Ms. Stefanski has seen first hand the detrimental effect that drugs have on individuals, children and families. She will continue to work with law enforcement to combat the dealers who contribute to the heroin and opiate abuse epidemic that plagues our county.
The residents of Jefferson County deserve a Prosecutor who will thoroughly review all the facts of a case and understand all sides of an issue before making crucial decisions. She will be tough on crime, but passionate towards individuals involved in the criminal justice system, including victims and defendants. According to Stefanski, “ I understand that good people can and do make mistakes. I will continue to support the existing deferred adjudication and pretrial diversion programs, such as Veterans Court, DWI Court and Drug Court, which allow appropriate candidates the opportunity to get their life back on track and continue to be productive citizens. Likewise, victim support will also remain a top priority.”
Ms. Stefanski has prosecuted many types of crimes, but she will take an aggressive approach to prosecuting officials that are trusted with public funds and violate that trust. Too often, people in our county are given a free pass after violating the public trust. Wasting public funds on personal expenses will not be tolerated.
