Gregory C. Davis Confirmed To Serve As Judge for Connecticut Superior Court

HARTFORD, CT – Gregory C. Davis, a resident of the Town of Bloomfield and the Town’s Deputy Mayor, was confirmed unanimously by the House of Representatives and the Senate of the Connecticut General Assembly on Wednesday, May 3, to serve as a judge for the Connecticut Superior Court. This follows a month long process that began in late March, where he was nominated for the position by Governor Ned Lamont.

At the time of the nomination, here is what Governor Lamont had to say, “Selecting nominees to become judges is one of the most important duties that I have as governor because these individuals will become responsible for ensuring that justice is administered fairly and without prejudice, and that everyone who comes before the court is treated equally and with respect. Our court system works best when it reflects the diversity, experience, and understanding of the people it serves. These individuals I am nominating have the qualifications that meet the high standards the residents of Connecticut deserve on the bench. Justice delayed is justice denied, and these new judges will help ensure the judicial branch is able to decide cases promptly and efficiently.”

Judge Davis graduated from Tufts University and obtained his Juris Doctor degree from Georgetown University Law Center. He has worked at The Travelers Companies, Inc. since 1997, where he serves as Senior Counsel in the Strategic Resolution Group. Prior to this, he worked at the law firm of Murtha Cullina and the legal department of Northeast Utilities (currently known as Eversource).

“To have not only our Deputy Mayor, but a resident of Bloomfield confirmed as a Superior Court Judge speaks to the quality of the leaders we have in this Town,” said Mayor Danielle C. Wong. “While I will miss the Deputy Mayor on the council, I want to thank him for his service to the Town and all that he did to make Bloomfield a better place for our residents and our business owners.”

With his confirmation complete, Judge Davis submitted his resignation from the Town Council effective on May 4th at 12:01 am. In accordance with the Bloomfield Town Charter Section 203, “Any vacancy in an elective town office, from whatever cause arising, shall be filled within sixty (60) days from the time of its occurrence by appointment by the town council for the unexpired portion of the term; provided, however, that if the person vacating the office was elected as a member of a political party such vacancy shall be filled by the appointment of a member of the same political party.”
