Another official takes medical leave

Judge Sandra McLean out for 30 days; Councilwoman Mary Goloff to miss another meeting

Butte Superior Court Judge Sandra McLean has taken a leave of absence for undisclosed medical reasons. Her cases will be taken up for the most part by Judge Robert Glusman.

McLean was appointed to the bench by then-Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger in 2005. Presiding Judge Steven Benson said she is out for 30 days and that he looks forward to her return.

Meanwhile, the Chico City Council on Tuesday (April 17) voted to extend member Mary Goloff’s medical leave (she’ll miss the May 1 meeting). Last month, she was granted a request to miss three meetings. Council members absent for three consecutive regular meetings are removed from office unless excused by the council.
