Following custom, Judge Goulding should become President of the Association, comprising Ohio’s 254 municipal and county court judges, in 2016.


“I am honored to have earned the respect and trust of my fellow judges throughout Ohio, and look forward to continuing my service both to the bench and our community,” said Judge Goulding.

He served as Presiding and Administrative Judge for the Toledo Municipal Court in 2011 and 2012, and currently serves as President of the Northwest Ohio Municipal/County Judges’ Association. He is an active member of the Civil Law & Procedure and Judicial Ethics Committees of the Ohio Judicial Conference, and has testified numerous times before the Ohio legislature on matters affecting judges.


He is a member of the Domestic Violence Task Force Court Committee, and is Chairman of the Judicial Administration and Legal Reform Committee of the Ohio State Bar Association. He is a member of the Toledo, Lucas County, Toledo Women’s, and Ohio State Bar Associations. He was appointed by Ohio Supreme Court Chief Justice Maureen O’Connor to serve on the high court’s Task Force on Funding Ohio Courts.
