Gov. Malloy Nominates Fourteen Connecticut Residents to Fill Judicial Vacancies on the Superior Court
(HARTFORD, CT – 4/13/2018) – Governor Dannel P. Malloy today announced that he is nominating fourteen state residents to fill vacancies for judgeships on the Connecticut Superior Court. These announcements come in addition to the eleven nominations for the court that the Governor made on Tuesday of last week, and the five he announced last Thursday.
While these nominations represent only a fraction of the 45 vacancies currently in the Superior Court, these 30 nominees will provide critical judicial capacity in performing the essential duties of the court system. The Governor intends to leave a total of 21 positions vacant by the end of his term. Currently, the bipartisan budget assumes a vacancy of only 12 positions, which means that this plan of action would realize additional, unanticipated budgetary savings by leaving nine funded positions vacant.
“Selecting nominees to fill vacancies in our court system is one of the most important duties that a governor performs – they must possess the qualities that build a stronger, fairer Connecticut for everyone in the long-run,” Governor Malloy said. “I believe that each of these women and men will bring to the bench the diverse qualities that mirror the people of our state while also meeting the high principles and integrity that our citizens deserve.”
Governor Malloy’s nominations for the Superior Court include:
Nada K. Sizemore of Cromwell: Sizemore worked in the insurance industry for over 31 years – 24 of which were with the Travelers Insurance Company in varying capacities in its corporate legal services organization. She most recently served as Second Vice President and General Counsel for Northland Insurance and Northfield Insurance – wholly owned subsidiaries of Travelers.
