Wednesday, April 10, 2013 2:32 PM

COLUMBUS – State Representative Tony Burkley (R-Payne) today was shadowed by Paulding County Common Please Court Judge Tiffany Beckman at the Statehouse in Columbus. Beckman is taking part in the Ohio Judicial Conference Legislative Exchange Program.

As part of the program, Judge Beckman and Rep. Burkley have attended meetings with representatives from various state offices, including the Department of Rehabilitation and Correction, the Department of Agriculture, the Ohio State Highway Patrol, and the Correctional Institution Inspection Committee.

“I have known Judge Beckman for several years from my time as a county commissioner,” Burkley said. “It has been a real joy to have her shadow me for the day.”

The Judicial-Legislative Exchange Program is aimed at improving the working relationship between the judicial and legislative branches by pairing individual legislators and judges and allowing them to see the day-to-day work of one another.
