Susan Longley to retire from seat as Waldo County Judge of Probate
Waldo County Judge of Probate Susan Longley is stepping down from her judicial role in Belfast, and has submitted her retirement letter to the public:
Dear Citizens of Waldo County,
In announcing my judicial retirement, first and foremost, I wish to thank the citizens of Waldo County for your constant support.
I have been honored to serve as your probate judge these past 15 years.
With your steady support and encouragement, we have been able to build not only a well-run and well-organized, quality judicial system but also one with well-established, family-friendly innovations.
With all now well in place, I consider this an opportune time also because of upcoming changes. One is the court’s exciting move upstairs into the former District Court’s spaces. Another is the court’s move into a new statewide legal probate code.
In short, with your steady support, we have built a family-friendly probate court. These quality improvements are now well in place for our move upstairs and into a new code. In turn, we have the opportune time for the next judge to begin anew and take our probate system to the next level.
Again, I sincerely thank the citizens of Waldo County for all your support. I have been honored to serve you.
Susan W. Longley, Esq.
