FARMINGTON — The Davis County Commission recently recognized four members of the county attorney’s staff for their commitment to the law and the trust they exemplify.

Mental Health Court case manager Suzanne Canning, along with county attorney office personnel Debbie Toner, Cheryl Martinez and Stacy Hutzley, were all recognized by the commission and presented with a county “buffalo” coin for their dedication.

“It is good to have people who can be trusted in an intense office environment,” Davis County Commissioner Louenda Downs said.

Davis County Attorney Troy Rawlings referred to the group as “the worker bees” and backbone of the department who every day go above and beyond what is asked of them.

Toner, the office manager, was praised for her ability to interact with legal staff and law enforcement, while Martinez, assistant office manager, was praised for her production, with “no whining.”

Hutzley, a legal technician, was recognized for her work with the DUI/Drug Court, while Canning is a blended mix of a paralegal, attorney and investigator, who has been instrumental in one of the county’s more high profile cases, Rawlings said.

Upon the commission recognizing the group, the four women excused themselves early from the remainder of the commission meeting saying they had work to do.
