The Presiding Judge for Trinity County's Superior Court has resigned.

Many Trinity County residents wondered why Judge Elizabeth Johnson had not announced she'd be running for a 2nd term. Monday she wrote an open letter to the citizens of Trinity County, explaining why she's resigning, and why she won't be seeking re-election.

Judge Johnson says complaints about her punctuality, financial affairs, and ethical compliance have been made to the Commission on Judicial Performance over the past five years. She claims some of the allegations are false, but said dealing with the complaints has caused stress and uncertainty for her family and the staff of the Superior Court she presides over.

She regrets not being able to complete her term.

She was elected in November of 2012.  Her last day will be January 18, 2017
