Akron municipal court -- finally -- has a new administrator

By Stephanie Warsmith Published: December 27, 2012

Akron Municipal Court finally has a new court administrator to replace Kenneth Kuckuck, who was abruptly fired from the position last summer.

The judges chose Montrella Jackson after an extensive and national search, according to a news release. She formerly worked for Summit County Children Services as an advocate, legal counsel and administrator for 13 years.

Jackson, 39, has a law degree from the University of Akron and a political science degree from the University of Michigan. She began as court administrator Nov. 26 and will earn $92,500 a year.

Jackson said in a news release issued Thursday that she is excited "to begin this new chapter" in her career.

The court administrator manages the overall operations of the court, supervises the managers, and develops and implements polices and procedures.

The court’s four Democratic judges signed an order in July firing Kuckuck, who had served for 12 years. The two Republicans didn’t sign. The reasons for the termination weren’t explained.
