Stefanie Salavantis for District Attorney



Like most political junkies I hate unopposed elections so I was glad to see that Jackie Mo will have an opponent in November.




CV: Luzerne County District Attorney Jackie Musto Carroll will have competition in the November general election.

Stefanie Salavantis, a Republican attorney from Kingston Township, won the Republican nomination with 713 write-in votes in the primary election May 17, according to Luzerne County Election Bureau officials, who counted the write-in votes today... Musto Carroll garnered 311 write-in votes on the Republican ballot.

I was surprised that the local GOP couldn't recruit a candidate after the success they had in the 2009 row officer races and go the usual route of gathering signatures on petitions but better late than never.


I haven't found a website for her but she has a Facebook fan page.

I heard Stephanie introduce herself to the crowd in Wilkes-Barre Township this past Monday. She struck a chord with me immediately. It was clear she did not want this race to go uncontested. (I jumped into the State Rep race last year for the same reason.) I look forward to seeing her on the "campaign trail" between now and November.

I hope she intends to be more than simply a name on the ballot. She should be on to win

How about a break? Are we simply determined to destroy every aspect of our government? Look at the 22 names on the Council list and tell me how man have a clue. The biggest thing seems to be they understand the Charter. Big deal, a high school kid who reads the charter will understand it. How do they plan to fix government? Now we have a recent addition to the Bar who has 2 years experience, never tried a criminal case, has absolutely NO management background to direct the large DA staff and she is so naive she thinks she is qualified to be the DA. WTF?

Only votes at the Y said...

She is pretty cute, so she is getting my vote.

She has as much trial experiance as Jackie had when she ran initially! This is an adminstrative position mostly so she can surely handle it!

The Senate laid the brunt of blame on the DA'S for being asleep at the wheel! Cash for Kids was a result of the DA office not being attentive! On purpose or by accident?! Lets get the old political games out of the DA office!Jackie as a Musto is not respected any more!

As is apparent by looking at her picture she is a very good looking young woman. How that becomes a factor in who somebody will vote for; is beyond me.

The Republican party has been desperate for years in Luzerne County just to find candidates to run for office. If that is who they choose as their candidate, so be it. But to say you will vote for her because of good looks is crazy. That is why this county is in the shape it is. I for one will not vote for her. I may not vote for Jackie Musto Carroll either, but I can tell you that my decision won't be based on a candidates looks or the fact that a candidates relative has been indicted.

I will weigh experience, honesty, integrity and other factors that matter most before making a decision as should everybody who takes their right to vote seriously.

I'm a little bit behind, GORT. But I'll catch up.

She should learn how to properly display the flag in her Pittston campaign office.
