PROVEN. PRINCIPLED. PROGRESSIVE.
Vote on Tuesday, June 11th, 2019 to re-elect Theo Stamos for Commonwealth's Attorney
An evolution in the criminal justice system is underway. I've always believed you can be tough on crime and reform minded at the same time. As Commonwealth's Attorney for Arlington County and the City of Falls Church, I have taken the lead in bringing about meaningful reform while ensuring that the core mission of this office remains unchanged -- and that is the principled prosecution of criminal defendants and the vigorous protection of victims' rights.
From lobbying the Virginia General Assembly to increase the threshold amount that separates a felony larceny arrest from a misdemeanor, to supporting the removal of the mandatory license suspension for first-time marijuana offenses, to supporting expanded criminal discovery, I have been a statewide leader in these efforts. Within my office we make regular use of alternative sentencing and diversion programs to help offenders avoid that first criminal conviction.
For more than 30 years I have been on the front lines of the criminal justice system, the last 7 years as Commonwealth's Attorney. I work with a dedicated staff of law enforcement professionals in my office and from around the region to keep our neighborhoods safe and to make sure the criminal justice system serves everyone with fairness, dignity, and respect.
As I launch my campaign for re-election, I invite you to explore my website and read more about our work serving the communities of Arlington County and the City of Falls Church.

I look forward to seeing you in the months ahead as I work to once again earn your vote for Commonwealth's Attorney.
