“Today we witnessed the confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to become an Associate Justice to the U.S. Supreme Court. Our Michigan Senators, the Honorable Gary Peters and the Honorable Debbie Stabenow are to be commended for joining with the Senate majority to approve this historic nomination. Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson is profoundly capable, highly qualified, and more than ready to assume her seat on our Country’s highest court. We applaud President Joe Biden on his decision to make this historic appointment and for breaking one more glass ceiling.””To students of history, our country established the Supreme Court more than 233 years ago. During these 230+ years, there have been 115 individuals appointed to the bench. One hundred and eight (108) Justices have been White males, two African American males appointed and five women. Thanks to President Ronald Reagan, in August 1981 Justice Sandra Day O’Connor became the first woman to be confirmed as a Supreme Court Justice. Twelve years later, President Bill Clinton appointed Ruth Bader Ginsburg, followed by Sonia Sotomayor in 2009 and Elena Kagan in 2010. Both appointed by President Barack Obama. Donald Trump appointed Amy Comey Barrett in September 2020. Neither the appointment of Justice Sandra Day O’Connor nor that of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson should have taken this long to happen in our nation. We must keep breaking barriers!”
