“The judiciary is the bedrock of our democratic institutions—helping to keep the executive and legislative branches of government in check. As a fellow Georgian and the son of Hispanic immigrants from humble beginnings, I couldn’t be more pleased that the Honorable Ana María Martinez now has the opportunity—as both an exceptional jurist and Latina woman—to help uphold this critical tradition.
