Jason Galkin appointed as Court Executive Officer, replacing retiring Sean Metroka

Editor’s note: Congratulations to Sean Metroka, who is retiring. It seemed like only yesterday that he filled this post. I joke that others ‘have lived here too long.’ Now I guess that also applies to me. Ha! The press release is here:

The judges of the Superior Court of California, County of Nevada are pleased to announce the appointment of Jason Galkin to serve as the next Court Executive Officer. This position is being vacated by Sean Metroka who is retiring.

Mr. Galkin has served as the Court Executive Officer in the Colusa County Superior Court since February 2016 and served as a Senior Administrative Analyst / Officer in the Orange County Superior Court during the four years prior to his appointment in Colusa. Jason holds a Master’s Certificate in Judicial Administration from California State University, Sacramento and is a member of the California State Bar, having graduated from a two-year accelerated J.D. program at Southwestern Law School in Los Angeles. In addition, Jason holds a Bachelor’s Degree in Communication from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst.

Mr. Metroka will retire on August 31, 2018 after having served the Superior Court of Nevada County for more than 18 years. He was appointed as Court Executive Officer in 2003. The judges and staff of the Court express their gratitude to Sean for his many years of exemplary leadership, service and dedication to our court, to our community and to the administration of justice. We wish him good health and much happiness in retirement.
