Jennifer Dameron is the new Director of Governmental Affairs and Policy for the Jackson County Prosecutor’s Office, Jackson County Prosecutor Jean Peters Baker announced today.

“Jennifer has a wide breath of valuable legal experience, including her work as a prosecutor and as an assistant attorney general, as well as vast experience in working with a variety of civic organizations and local government agencies,” Baker said. “She will be a wonderful addition to this office.”

Dameron began her legal career in the Missouri Attorney General’s Office and worked in Kansas City as an attorney in private practice. She also has an impressive list of civic activities, including Truman State Board of Governors, Tax Increment Financing Commission of Kansas City and Land Bank of Kansas City.

In 2007, Dameron was named the Association for Woman Lawyers of Greater Kansas City’s Woman of the Year. She also had a variety of offices, including president, for the Committee for County Progress and has served on the Executive Committee of the Jackson County Democratic Committee.

Dameron has a law degree from the University of Missouri in Columbia and a bachelor’s degree from Truman State University. She and her family live in Jackson County.

Dameron fills the vacancy created earlier this year when Caleb Clifford left the prosecutor’s office to become chief of staff for Jackson County Executive Frank White.
