Sue Alexander did not realize what she was getting herself into.

Deciding to apply for an open Alameda County court commissioner slot, Alexander filed her paperwork just fifteen minutes before the deadline. Though she didn’t know it then, Alexander would have a gargantuan task in front of her: executing the changes under Assembly Bill 1058, landmark 1997 legislation that transformed the way child support cases are handled in California.

As Alameda County’s first child support commissioner, Alexander rose to that challenge and to many more after that, friends and colleagues say, forging a track record that led to her selection as this year’s recipient of the Benjamin Aranda Award.
