Historic Appointment In Massachustes

From the How Appealing blog


“Baker nominates Kimberly Budd as chief justice”:
 Matt Stout of The Boston Globe has an article that begins, “Governor Charlie Baker on Wednesday nominated Kimberly S. Budd to be chief justice of the Supreme Judicial Court, putting her in line to become the first Black woman to lead the state’s highest court in its 328-year history.”

Steph Solis of The Republican of Springfield, Massachusetts reports that “Massachusetts Gov. Charlie Baker seeks to elevate Judge Kimberly Budd to chief justice of the Supreme Judicial Court.”

And in commentary, online at The Boston Globe, Shirley Leung has an essay titled “Kimberly Budd is the right choice to be chief justice of the Supreme Judicial Court; She is beyond qualified, and Governor Baker was wise to look past another candidate’s political connections.”
