ST. CHARLES – Kane County State’s Attorney Jamie Mosser plans to announce her intention to seek a second term at a reelection announcement and fundraising event June 21, according to a social media post.

The next general election is Nov. 5, 2024.

In a text message, Mosser wrote she has “more to accomplish” by continuing to serve another term as Kane County State’s Attorney.

“For the last 2 1/2 years, I have worked tirelessly as your Kane County State’s Attorney,” Mosser’s text said. “I have actively sought to bring true criminal justice reform by creating new programming and advocating to fix concerning legislation. I have also increased the amount of highly trained prosecutors and investigators for the office so that we can swiftly prosecute those who choose to make our community unsafe. With that being said, there is more to accomplish and I would be honored to serve this community for another term where I will continue to do more for Kane County!”

Her Facebook page, Jamie Mosser for Kane County, announced the event at 5:30 p.m. June 21 at The Wine Exchange, 1 Illinois St., Suite 140, St. Charles. There is no cost to attend her announcement but donations to the candidate are welcome, according to the Facebook page.

“Growing up in Illinois, one of four raised by a single mother, she learned the importance of hard work, the need for responsibility and the value of a strong family unit,” her reelection biography said. “She knew at a young age that she wanted to be an attorney. When she learned that the role of a prosecutor is seeking justice for the community, she knew that was her intended career path.”

After passing bar exams in Illinois and Louisiana, Mosser served as an assistant district attorney for the Orleans Parrish from 2002 to 2005, handling cases from drug possession to homicide, according to her biography.

She returned to Illinois in 2005 and served as a Kane County prosecutor for crimes such as domestic violence, felony, DUI, Drug Rehabilitative Court and the Special Prosecution Unit, which handles narcotics cases.

Mosser was in private practice from 2015 to 2017 when she joined Prairie State Legal Services, and in 2019 she left to open a firm with her husband, Jameson, also an attorney, before being elected as state’s attorney in 2020.

Kane County Republican Chairman Andro Lerario said the party will be discussing Mosser’s candidacy at their next central committee meeting.

Lerario said at this point the party does not have a Republican lawyer prepared to run against her.

“I’m sure we will hear something soon,” Lerario said.
