Bruner, Cindy 2002 Evaluation


Seventeenth Judicial District - Adams County Court Judge 

Honorable Cindy H. Bruner

Retention Year: 2002
Recommendation: Retain

The Seventeenth Judicial District Commission on Judicial Performance recommends that Judge Cindy H. Bruner BE RETAINED.

Judge Bruner was appointed to the bench in April 1991. Prior to her appointment she served as a Deputy District Attorney. Judge Bruner has demonstrated her active interest in furthering her knowledge of the bench by attending numerous training conferences and taking judicial courses

Her community involvement is numerous and is considered by Judge Bruner to be "important to my judicial role." Her volunteer efforts range from helping high school students learn about the judicial process to supporting public television. The Commission found her volunteer work to be a true testament to her commitment to the community.

The Commission was very impressed with Judge Bruner’s dedication to the bench. She has served on many boards and continues to strive for the best judicial performance. This was demonstrated through her own identification of areas where improvements to her court could be made and her work in those areas. In addition to her own performance, Judge Bruner serves as a mentor to new judges and law students.

Finally, the Commission was extremely pleased to see the results of the questionnaires sent to attorneys and non-attorneys who appeared in the judge’s courtroom. Judge Bruner rated well in all areas. She was recommended for retention by 91% of the non-attorneys surveyed with the remainder having no opinion. Most impressive was the recommendation she received from the attorneys surveyed, with 100% recommending retention. Clearly Judge Cindy H. Bruner has demonstrated her abilities and commitment to the bench.
