Chief Justice Rogers Forms Public Service and Trust Commission

Chief Justice Chase T. Rogers today announced the formation of the Public Service and Trust Commission, a diverse panel of forty-one individuals charged with creating a strategic plan that will guide the Judicial Branch in the upcoming years. The Commission will be chaired by Appellate Court Judge Alexandra DiPentima.

This initiative is another measure taken by the Chief Justice to fulfill her vision of an open, transparent, and accountable judiciary.

In preparing the strategic plan, the Commission has been asked to:

  • Examine public perceptions of our state judicial system,
  • Conduct scientifically-valid opinion research to determine the level of satisfaction of people who use the court system,
  • Hold public hearings throughout the state to obtain citizen in-put; and
  • Conduct focus groups of court personnel, lawyers, and others who are involved with the court system.

The Strategic Plan, once concluded, will include a vision for the future of the Judicial Branch, a revised mission statement, and specific and measurable outcome goals – strategies and activities that will enable the Branch to carry out its mission and achieve its vision.

“I am delighted to announce the formation of the Public Service and Trust Commission and look forward to receiving their proposed strategic plan,” said Chief Justice Rogers. “For the plan to be relevant, it must focus on the present and future needs of the people we serve. It is my sincere hope that this plan will lead to improved services and ultimately enhanced public trust.”

“The Chief Justice has tasked the Commission with a daunting mission, but I am confident that we will be successful,” said Judge DiPentima. “The Commission is comprised of a diverse group of talented individuals with a wide breadth of knowledge and experience and I thank them for devoting their time and energy to this important endeavor.”

The Commission is comprised of Magistrate Sandra Sosnoff Baird, Judge Robert E. Beach, Jr., Judge John D. Boland, Mr. Joseph F. Camilleri, Mr. William H. Carbone, Judge Thomas J. Corradino, Attorney Joseph D. D’Alesio, Judge Nina F. Elgo, Attorney Melissa A. Farley, Judge Roland D. Fasano, Judge James T. Graham, Ms. Lisa Holden, Attorney Norman K. Janes, Judge Clarance J.
