John Michael Stefanski (born April 13, 1984) is an attorney in his native Crowley, Louisiana, who is a Republican member of the Louisiana House of Representatives for District 42. He won a special election on March 25, 2017, to fill the seat vacated by the Democrat Representative Jack Montoucet, who resigned from the legislature to join the administration of Governor John Bel Edwards as the secretary of wildlife and fisheries.

In a turnout of less than 26 percent of registered voters, Stefanski received 3,594 (54 percent) to his fellow Republican Jay Suire's 3,037 (46 percent). No Democrat sought to succeed Montoucet.[1] Two other Republicans, Raymond Crews in District 8 and Joe Stagni in District 92, also won special elections in 2017 to fill vacancies. In those cases, the seats had previous Republican legislators.

Stefanski graduated from Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge and the Loyola University College of Law in New Orleans. He is a partner in the firm Edwards, Stefanski & Zaunbrecher. He is a lector at St. Michael's Roman Catholic Church. He is a member of the Crowley Chamber of Commerce and formerly sat on the Acadia Parish Planning Commission. He is a volunteer basketball coach for St. Michael's Elementary School in Crowley. He is a member of the hunting organization Ducks Unlimited and the National Rifle Association.[2]

Stefanski has opposed Democratic Governor John Bel Edwards push for higher taxes. "It would be very hard for me to get there [to support higher taxes]. I would have to be confident that there was a reduction in government spending. We have a duty to make sure we are reducing government in line with what the private sector is doing.”[3]
