Today saw the Retirement Celebration in honor of Daniel P. Potter, the Clerk/Executive Officer of the 2d District who is retiring after over 40 years of service. APJ Lui acted as master of ceremonies and humorously explained how Danny is being reassigned to the 7th District, a mythical paradise with great golfing. Among the many speakers were PJ Gilbert and retired Div. 7 Writ Guru Pablo Drobny. The room was packed with friends, family, court-family, the Clerk of Court from the 1st District, justices from the 2d District and Supreme Court Justice Jenkins. An especially heartfelt encomium came from Eva McClintock, who will become the 2d District’s Clerk/XO at the start of the coming year.
Here’s what’s been posted on the 2d District webpage today:
