A Message from the 2011 Judicial Nominating Committee 


On behalf of the 2011 Arizona Judicial Awards Nominating Committee, we are pleased to present to you the roster of award recipients for this year.  We appreciate the opportunity to serve the Chief Justice and the Arizona Judicial Council as committee members.   

As we reviewed the nominees, we were all impressed with the caliber of effort exhibited by the various individuals and court systems in the state to implement the goals of the Chief Justice in Justice 2020.  These nominees present good news for Arizona where individuals, court systems, and programs looked at challenges of reduced budgets and personnel and found new ways to protect the public and provide justice. As a Committee, we extend our heartfelt thanks to all of the nominees for your work and encourage you to apply again next year.

 We believe the nominees present a series of positive stories that should be publicly shared to remind Arizonans that there is a way for government to work in a favorable way, even in the face of limited resources.
