Arlington County Commonwealth’s Attorney Richard E. Trodden announced his retirement today.
The four-term prosecutor said he will not seek re-election next year. In a statement, Trodden endorsed Chief Deputy Commonwealth’s Attorney Theo Stamos to be his successor.
“Theo has earned, in her nearly 25 years of experience, the respect of the bench, the defense bar, her colleagues and the citizens of Arlington County and the City of Falls Church,” Trodden said. “She is the right person at the right time.”
Stamos, a Democrat, also has the backing of Arlington County Sheriff Beth Arthur and Clerk of the Circuit Court Paul Ferguson.
“Theo is tough but fair,” said Ferguson. “She’s a compassionate and caring person,” as well as “a great prosecutor and a community leader.”
Stamos says she’s ready for the job.
“I’m passionate about the work our office does and I’m grateful for Dick’s endorsement,” she said. “I’m looking forward to campaigning and to winning the support of the voters of Arlington and Falls Church.”
