President's Message

In the last four months I have flown to L.A. four times for various CCRA projects. For this NorCal chick, every time I fly to L.A., there is an air of excitement. There is also the reminder to call the freeways by “the” (the 405, the 10) so I don’t stand out.

Putting that aside, on my first trip as soon as I saw the Hollywood sign I instantly thought of the line from Pretty Woman: “Welcome to Hollywood! What's your dream? Everybody comes here; this is Hollywood, land of dreams. Some dreams come true, some don't; but keep on dreamin' — this is Hollywood. Always time to dream, so keep on dreamin.”

The first trip was for an e-filing presentation to the Orange County court reporters. That’s definitely a dream of mine and CCRA’s. You can read the article in this issue from Doreen Perkins, the chair of the E-filing Task Force, as to why we believe so vehemently in this statewide project.
