About Mike Thurston

The Experience to Protect Our Waukesha County Family

Mission:
I strongly believe that we aren’t protecting anyone in Waukesha County if we aren’t protecting our children and families first. As a father of three and a career prosecutor, it has been my belief that protecting one’s community is as important as protecting one’s family. I’ve spent most of my 17 years fighting for kids and families in every community I have served. I am making it my mission, through my campaign for District Attorney, to improve public safety in Waukesha County with common sense conservative solutions.

Raising My Family In Waukesha County:
Waukesha County welcomed my family back in 2013. I have done my very best, both professionally and personally, to reciprocate that kindness. I care deeply about our community, this special place where I’ve raised and watched my family grow, and I will work fearlessly to see that it remains this way.
