Rebecca Padilla has been appointed the Pinal County clerk of the Superior Court.

The appointment by Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey fills the vacancy created by the resignation of Amanda Stanford. Under Arizona law, the vacancy created by the resignation is filled by gubernatorial appointment until the next general election in 2022, according to a release.

“Rebecca’s experience and commitment to the court community will allow her to excel immediately in Pinal County,” Gov. Ducey said in the release. “I am delighted to appoint Rebecca Padilla as the Pinal County clerk of the Superior Court.”

Ms. Padilla is a lifetime resident of Pinal County and has dedicated her entire career to the Pinal County Superior Court. As part of the Pinal County Superior Court administration since 2018, she has been working as the judicial administrative assistant to Presiding Judge Stephen McCarville. Among her responsibilities, she managed the case flow for Judge McCarville’s division in relation to calendars, trials, and hearings.

Prior to her current position, Ms. Padilla worked for the Pinal County clerk of the Superior Court for more than 20 years, most recently as a senior deputy clerk. In this role, her responsibilities included receipting court filing fees, maintaining and balancing a daily cash drawer, depositing monies to the county treasurer and posting various payments such as cash bonds and purge payments.

Additionally, Ms. Padilla independently operated the Apache Junction Satellite Office for a time and provided accurate reporting of all financial transactions collected. She also has experience working in the Customer Service Department, where she assisted thousands of court customers with navigating the court process. In 2004, she  received the Arizona Front Line Staff Worker of the Year for her work as a Deputy Clerk.

Ms. Padilla has extensive training and substantial knowledge in the filing, processing, and proper management of cases, including probate, family law, civil, criminal, and juvenile cases. She is trained and proficient in the Superior Court’s case management system, AJACS, in addition to other information systems. She also has a Green Belt Certification in Lean Six Sigma, a business strategy program for process improvement that trains individuals to analyze, identify, and solve quality problems while implementing and sustaining high-impact projects, the release states.
