As Chief Justice my overall goal is to make the courts more responsive to the needs of those they serve. This goal is shared by the judges, administrators and court staff, and to achieve it the courts must focus on the following: increasing the public's understanding of the system, improving programs to assist victims and, most important, eliminating delays. During 1987, with the support of the other chief judges, the courts have made advances in all three of these areas. The following are some of the highlights.
