Administrative Director Cuts Staff Costs: Pensions, Parking, Vehicles
At the Feb 19 council business meeting, Judicial Council Administrative Director Martin Hoshino announced that high-level council staff will start contributing to their retirement accounts and cease receiving a monthly parking stipend effective July 1, aligning their benefits with the rest of the council’s staff. The meeting agenda, reports, and an archived audiocast of the entire meeting broken out by topic are available on the council's meeting webpage.
To provide leadership for advancing the consistent, impartial, independent, and accessible administration of justice, the Judicial Council must be aware of the issues and concerns confronting the judiciary, as well as appropriate solutions and responses. The council carries out this mission primarily through the work of its advisory committees and task forces.
