Chandler Mayor Jay Tibshraeny is going back to school, but it’s not a plot to a 1980s Rodney Dangerfield movie.

The mayor is learning how to be a judge as he counts down his final few days as Chandler’s mayor.

“I’ll be doing training (this) week for my new gig, so we’ll roll right into it,” Tibshraeny said.

The “new gig” is justice of the peace for the San Marcos Justice Court – a job he describes “like a judge.”

In his new role, Tibshraeny will deal with matters such as orders of protection, small claims court matters, civil suits of $10,000 or less, landlord/tenant issues and neighborhood disputes.
