Judge Sonia Sotomayor's Confirmation to the United States Supreme Court

August 6, 2009

As the representative of the 85th Assembly District, which includes Bronxdale Houses, Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s childhood home, I am honored to express a tremendous sense of pride many New Yorkers feel today.

As a proud Puerto Rican and a proud Bronxite, I join the many throughout the nation who celebrate this momentous occasion of Judge Sonia Sotomayor's confirmation to the United States Supreme Court.

Judge Sonia Sotomayor’s confirmation offers all of us a new message of hope, inspiration and achievement, just like President Barack Obama did some months ago.

Congratulations Judge Sonia Sotomayor, and may God continue to bless you.
