Senator Schumer communicated to the White House this week his support for John Sinatra Jr. to serve on the Western District federal bench in Buffalo.

This nomination was the result of a sound, collaborative and bi-partisan process that produced a well-respected and legally-qualified choice with broad bi-partisan support throughout Buffalo and the Western New York community.

Senator Schumer hopes the Senate will confirm Mr. Sinatra, as well as other bi-partisan judicial nominees, as quickly as possible,” said Jason Kaplan, spokesman for Senator Schumer.
