On February 12, 2015, Nigel Ratburn pushed incumbent Mayor Hirsch off the roof of the City Hall building. After Hirsch's death, Stephanie approached Ratburn to inform him that, according to the Assassination Law, he would become the next Mayor of Elwood City.
As Ratburn's secretary, Stephanie has consistently been the gatekeeper to the mayor's office. She is also the campaign manager for Ratburn's 2023 re-election campaign.
It is possible that Stephanie is a member of the Republican Party, as her running mate Mayor Ratburn is.
