“Judge Kimberly Budd’s qualifications, temperament and confirmation today will ensure the Supreme Judicial Court is at full strength when they return for their first sitting in September,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “I congratulate Judge Budd and Judges Frank Gaziano and David Lowy as we look forward to the impartiality and hard work they will bring to the Commonwealth’s highest court from decades of judicial practice. We further offer our thanks and appreciation to the Governor’s Council for their measured, timely and thorough examination and unanimous approval of all three confirmed nominees.”
