Type of Action Requested: Resolution

SUBJECT:
Appointment of Deputy  City Magistrate
RECOMMENDATION:
Staff recommends the Mayor and Council approve the appointment of Anna Guerra, Court Administrator, as a Deputy City Magistrate to serve a term to expire on December 31, 2022.
DISCUSSION:
Anna Guerra has served as Court Administrator for three years. Serving as a Deputy Magistrate is a required job duty included in the Court Administrator job description (pending appointment by Mayor and Council). Appointing Anna to serve as a Deputy Magistrate will ensure that the Court has adequate coverage in the event the presiding judge is out of the office (at lunch or needs to leave the office for a short period of time to attend meetings or appointments).

Anna Guerra served as a Judicial Office Supervisor for the Clerk of Pinal County Superior Court for five years. Making the transition from a general jurisdiction court to a limited jurisdiction court would be a challenge for anyone. Anna has risen to the challenge and has worked tirelessly to learn the processes and procedures of the Court including the types of cases within the court's jurisdiction. Anna has completed Civil Traffic Hearing Officer training and presides over and adjudicates civil traffic cases on a regular basis.

Anna Guerra has aggressively pursued completing the National Center for State Court's (NCSC) Institute for the Court Management (ICM) certification. While ICM allows participants five years to complete each program, Anna recently achieved credentialing in the Certified Court Manager (CCM) program and needs one more class to obtain the Certified Court Executive (CCE) credentialing.
FISCAL IMPACT:
None.
ALTERNATIVES:
1.) Appoint Anna Guerra as a Deputy Magistrate for a term expiring December 31, 2022.
2.) Do not approve the request to appoint Anna Guerra as Deputy Magistrate.
