She headed the Probate Reform Committee which was actually set up to protect the judges and their bad behavior, not the citizens’ rights. She didn’t want accountability for the
fiduciaries to the families. She worked against the Bill’s that were presented to the Legislature that would protect the rights of the proposed ward and the family’s rights. She protects the bad behavior of the judges but does not protect the rights of the citizens.
