Running to Retain Position as 72nd District Judge
Mona Armstrong is privileged to serve as your 72nd District Court Judge. Judge Armstrong’s personal and professional experiences have instilled in her the exact knowledge and temperament best suited to serve the people of St. Clair County as 72nd District Court Judge.
Her professional focus and priority were protecting the most vulnerable among us from criminal exploitation.
Prior to being appointed to the bench, Judge Armstrong served the people of St. Clair County for nearly twenty-five years as an Assistant Prosecutor. She served in the Major Crimes Unit of the St. Clair County Prosecutor’s Office, handling homicide and other high- profile cases. Additionally, for numerous years she was responsible for the Special Victim’s Unit handling Child Criminal Sexual Conduct and Physical Abuse cases. As the head of the Major Crimes Unit, she tried over 20 murder cases – securing convictions in every single case.
A career spent prosecuting the worst predators in St. Clair County history also meant consoling countless victims and their loved ones. Judge Armstrong helped them gain their voice and achieve justice. These experiences gave Judge Armstrong the kind of compassion and empathy that does not come from merely observing things in court, but from doing the work.
Judge Armstrong has also demonstrated her commitment to our community by actively volunteering in several community organizations. She is an Emerald Circle member of the Women’s Initiative St. Clair Community Foundation. She also serves on the Foundation’s Grants Committee. Mona is Chairperson of the Board of Trustees for McLaren Port Huron Hospital. Previously, Mona was a Board Member with Girl Scouts- Michigan Waterways Council, the Port Huron Chapter of the March of Dimes, the Bluewater YMCA, and multiple committees for St. Clair County RESA and Baker College.
Judge Armstrong’s personal focus is being a devoted wife and mother. Mona has been married to husband Todd for over 20 years. They reside in Fort Gratiot with their two children, Alysse (18) and Alex (15). They are members of St. Mary Catholic Church in Port Huron.
Judge Armstrong’s experiences reflect her deep and abiding commitment to the pursuit of justice in St. Clair County, to improving our community, and to helping our families. She is running in the August 4th, 2020 election to continue that commitment to public service in the 72nd District Court.
