Mailloux appointed to Supreme Court Advisory Committee on Probate Rules

Nov 05, 2012

The Supreme Court’s Advisory Committee on Probate Rules announced the appointment of former Probate Judge Randolph Mailloux as a key member of the committee. Mailloux was selected for his strong interest and previous commitment as a sitting probate judge to bring Maine’s Probate Court system in line with the Federal Court’s lead for electronic filing.

“I am very pleased and proud to have been selected to serve on this committee, as this group of eight members has single-handedly brought electronic filing into the probate courts with absolutely no administrative budget whatsoever,” said Mailloux. Currently, Oxford, Cumberland, Penobscot and York counties are the four county probate courts which are running the pilot program. Waldo County, along with the other remaining 11 counties, is scheduled to go online May 1, 2013.

“Randy Mailloux has been an invaluable asset to our committee,” commented Judge Dana Hanley, who is chairman of the committee. Hanley went on to say, “Randy is committed to bringing whatever efficiencies are possible into the Probate Court system and has not only the necessary energy to make it a reality, but also firsthand experience as the former judge of probate for Waldo County.” Maine’s Probate Court system is leading the way for all state courts in the area of electronic filing without any real additional cost to either county government or the citizens of Maine, which in this day and age is not something you hear very often.

Randy Mailloux is a native of Maine and for the past 34 years has made his home in Belfast with his wife, Toni, along with their children and grandchildren. Mailloux was a candidate for judge of probate for Waldo County in the recent election and looks forward to the opportunity, once again, to give back to the citizens of Waldo County in the form of public service.

Today is the day to get out and back the BEST candidate for the position of Judge of Probate- SUSAN LONGLEY!!!  Press releases do not make strong families!  Dirty politics such as happened with the sign "complaint"do not serve the people of Waldo County best!!! Let's keep our eye on the goal of returning Susan Longley to the bench!

If ever anyone deserved such an honor it would be Randy. Over the years he has dedicated a lot of his time in the belief and workings of the Probate Court, so that it will be more efficient for those who need it.

 Randy was instrumental in constructing the court room that now serves as Probate. He IS NOT and NEVER HAS been, a skilled politician to the point that the current Probate Judge is. But in his heart he would give his all to thos ewho need his expertise. He does not constantly seek name recognition, or flaunt his political beliefs in order to secure a job that simply replaces an income. Randy abided by the court's rules and reg's when he was Judge and he would continue doing so. I am honored to say I know the former Judge well and would hope he one day may be back behind the bench where he belongs. May be today is that day!
