REPRESENTATIVE MINNIE GONZALEZ STATEMENT ON
JUDGE CARMEN ESPINOSA’S NOMINATION BY GOVERNOR MALLOY
I am very pleased with Governor Dannel P. Malloy’s decision to nominate the first Latina Judge Carmen Espinosa to Connecticut’s Appellate Court. As a Latina member of the General Assembly, my colleagues and I urged the Governor to nominate Latinos to various positions of leadership.
I eagerly await her confirmation by the Judiciary Committee and eventually the General Assembly. Judge Espinosa’s admittance to the Appellate Court is a testament to the growing Latino presence and participation in the governmental process.
