Should the county emergency management agency office duties be a separate office?
Retirement is next assignment for Judge Webb



Staff Writer

Monday was the last day of scheduled court dates for Paulding County Common Pleas Court Judge J. David Webb. After four terms, a total of 24 years, he is stepping down from the bench and into retirement.

His last official day in office will be Dec. 31. Tiffany Beckman will be replacing him in the courtroom as of Jan. 1, 2011. She was sworn in Dec. 28 by Judge Webb.

Webb’s career as a jurist began as a seed planted in the mind of a child. His maternal grandfather was an attorney in Newton, Ill. where Webb spent part of his summers as a boy.

It was my privilege to get to know you while I was a reporter for area newspapers in the 1980's and 1990's. You quickly earned my respect as an honorable and fair judge. Best wishes for your retirement, Judge Webb!
