Nancy Navarro Meets Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor

This week, Montgomery County Councilmember Nancy Navarro had the honor of attending a Baltimore Orioles game with newly appointed United States Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor.

As luck would have it, the Justice was attending the game to make good on a promise made by Senator Ben Cardin, during her confirmation hearings. The Baltimore Sun blog noted:

"Back in July, at a Senate confirmation hearing for Sonia Sotomayor, Sen. Ben Cardin of Maryland invited the judge to be his guest at an Orioles game."


"Last night, Cardin made good on the offer to Sotomayor, who became the first Latina Supreme Court justice to sit in a skybox at Camden Yards (the Maryland Stadium Authority's box, for those keeping score at home)."

This comes on the heels of President Barack Obama's address on health care at the University of Maryland, College Park. Councilmember Navarro and her colleague Councilmember Valerie Ervin had the opportunity to attend this rally on one of the most important issues of our time. This was an exciting week, indeed!
