St. Louis County Circuit Court Hires Public Information Officer

Clayton, MO – The St. Louis County Circuit Court has hired Christine A. Bertelson as its first-ever public information officer. 

“We are delighted to have someone with Ms. Bertelson’s skills, intellect and experience to help the public and the media stay on top of events in the 21st Judicial Circuit, which is the largest and busiest in the state of Missouri,” said Paul Fox, Director of Administration for the Court. “We also intend to take advantage of her extensive knowledge of the community to find more ways to connect with the people we serve.”

Bertelson was a reporter, columnist, and the first woman to become editor of the editorial page at the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.  In 1995, she won the coveted Ernie Pyle Award from the Scripps Howard Foundation, a national award for outstanding human interest writing.  In 2009, she left the newspaper to join the staff of former Missouri Gov. Jay Nixon, where she served as communications director, senior adviser and chief speechwriter.  She starts her new position with the County Court on May 22.

“I look forward to this outstanding opportunity to help the public better understand the role of the courts in administering justice, protecting the residents of St. Louis County and improving the quality of life for everyone,” Bertelson said.

Bertelson, a graduate of Smith College, has two daughters and lives in Webster Groves.
