Commissioner Lieberman Named to Ohio Supreme Court Taskforce

Montgomery County Commissioner Debbie Lieberman announced today that Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Conner has appointed her to the Supreme Court Taskforce on the Funding of Ohio Courts.  The 28 member taskforce brings people together from judicial, law enforcement, state, county and local government as well as other stakeholders and will develop recommendations on the future of the Ohio court system. 

The taskforce will identify the method and manner by which Ohio courts are funded, determine the long-term efficacy of the current funding models, and review possible alternatives that might provide sustained and consistent funding for Ohio courts.

“This is a great appointment and I’m honored Chief Justice O’Conner included me,” said Commissioner Lieberman.  “I have been working to right-size Montgomery County’s budget and operations since being elected commissioner.  I think a review like this is critical for all governments across Ohio and across the country.”

The Supreme Court Taskforce on the Funding of Ohio Courts will hold its first meeting on Friday March 23rd and will continue to meet over the next several months and provide a report and recommendations on its findings.

“Montgomery County has a long history of innovation and creative solutions for county government.  This is a great opportunity to bring some of that experience to this taskforce,” added Commissioner Lieberman.
